About the show

Theater for the New City presents a new drama about a traumatic event that forces a grandmother to reconsider her silence about surviving the Holocaust. More…

Esther’s world is turned upside down when her daughter, Deborah, rushes home to say that their New Jersey temple is on lock down and her granddaughter, Elaina, is trapped inside. Esther lived through the Holocaust but never talked about it, despite pleas from her daughter and granddaughter—it was just too painful to recount that part of her life. During the endless wait, Esther realizes it's her duty to share her story, but will it be too late for Elaina to hear it? Karen Lynn Gorney, star of the 1977 movie 'Saturday Night Fever,' headlines the production.
