Sixteen-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. Half a century later, Sala reveals her painful history to her grown daughter, documented in more than 350 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 were on display at the New York Public Library in 2006. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Rachel Feinstein grew up outside of Washington DC as the daughter of a civil rights lawyer and a blues musician, giving her a keen eye for the absurd and unjust. She developed her hilarious, character-driven style by opening for her father's blues band as a kid and doing impressions of various loud and jarring relatives. A finalist on Season 7 of Last Comic Standing, Rachel Feinstein has been featured on Russell Simmons Presents: Live at the El Rey, TBS's Just For Laughs series and Comics Unleashed, and has her own half hour special, Comedy Central Presents Rachel Feinstein. She has also written for The Onion and Heeb Magazine, and has appeared on VH1's Jewtastic and CNN's Not Just Another Cable News Show.
Phoebe Bottoms has been performing for over 17 years and has been on this earth for 22. She is a recent transplant from Minnesota and shares an apartment with two dogs and her live-in goyfriend, Matt. Her jokes and dimpled face will warm the cockles of your heart and then charge them an appearance fee.
Recommended for ages 18 and up (language/content).
