About this show

The heartfelt, lyrical portrait of a German Jewish refugee haunted by her past, but resiliently moving toward the future, witnessed over the course of generations of the same family that inhabits a single apartment from 1949 to 2016. Set during the eight nights of Chanukah, and spanning eight decades of the protagonist's life, Jennifer Maisel's play lyrically weaves together heart-aching moments with life-affirming humor to call out the trauma experienced not only by concentration camp survivors, but by African-American descendants of slavery, by interned Japanese Americans, and by current victims of war in Africa and the Middle East.
