16-year-old Sala Garncarz volunteered to take her sister's place when she was ordered to report to a Nazi labor camp in wartime Germany. Neither she nor her family could have imagined that six weeks of required labor would stretch to almost five years of slavery in seven labor camps. After half a century of silence about her experience during the war, Sala reveals her painful history to her grown daughter, documented in over 300 letters from friends and family that she risked her life to save. The resurfacing of these letters begins an emotional journey of self-discovery for Sala's entire family. Arlene Hutton adapted this true account for the stage from the book Sala's Gift. The letters themselves are considered an important addition to Holocaust research, and are on display at the MJCC's Katz Family Mainstreet Gallery in conjunction with this theatrical production.

This was not a re-enactment of "War of The Worlds" but a compilation of other radio shows based on Martian invasions, which was disappointing since we didn't realize this when we bought our tickets. The writing and voice acting was interesting enough but we were stunned at the many sound glitches, like loud feedback, being that this is a radio theater company. Some of the sounds produced on stage were either not audible enough or seemed out of place with the narrative. It was interesting enough but just Ok as a night out.
