A SHAYNA MAIDEL Comes to Playhouse On Park
Playhouse on Park's 2019-20 season continues with Barbara Lebow's A SHAYNA MAIDEL, running October 30 - November 17. This poignant piece is "a tribute to the sustaining power of family" (New York Times). Playhouse on Park is honored to bring this play to audiences as part of their eleventh season.
A SHAYNA MAIDEL is a powerful drama of survival and strength about two sisters trying to reconnect after years of separation brought on by the Holocaust. Although born in Poland, Rose, now in her twenties came to the United States with her father, Mordechai, at the age of four and is now completely "Americanized." The plan had been for Rose's mother and sister to join them. Their ordeal in the concentration camps, which only the sister survived, has brought a burden of guilt to the aging Mordechai and deeply mixed feelings as he awaits the arrival of his elder daughter, Lusia, who has, at last, found her way to America. A SHAYNA MAIDEL explores family, faith, and forgiveness in the pursuit of a better future. Dawn Loveland Navarro will direct; she returns to Playhouse on Park after having directed Intimate Apparel, The Chosen, and Proof.
