About the Play:
Eight Nights tells the story of the lives that inhabit an apartment from 1949 to 2016. Rebecca, a young Holocaust survivor and refugee, is finally free to start anew in the United States, as she confronts the past that haunts her, alongside her father, husband, friends, daughter and granddaughter. The play takes place over the eight nights of Chanukah, spanning eight decades of Rebecca’s life, gracefully weaving together heart-aching moments with dark yet life-affirming humor.
The story touches upon not only the story of Jewish Holocaust survivors, but also the global refugee experience, and acknowledges the trauma mirrored in the African-American community, with interned Japanese citizens, and the current Syrian crisis.
