Transcending grief and rekindling hope, A Shayna Maidel tells one family’s story of survival and resiliency following the Holocaust. Separated for almost 20 years, two sisters are reunited in America after World War II. Through flashbacks and fantasies, the patchwork tale of a life now shattered is painted in haunting detail. A piece originally from our cancelled 2020 line-up, A Shayna Maidel’s touching story is the perfect addition to our current season.

"It’s an emotional powerhouse of almost overwhelming proportions.” - Hartford Journal
