This play was outstanding. The smart, funny writing was performed beautifully by the Hinkler sisters. The build of the show was fantastic, and it brought me to tears more than once. There was just enough humor thrown in, and had me captivated the entire time. I can't recommend this show enough. It was amazing!... full review

I loved this show - the Hinkler sisters are touching, feisty, daring, compassionate performers with an exciting ability to transform themselves into characters from another era. The play is heartbreaking in its simplicity focusing on a complicated relationship as it is undermined by the Nazi's rise to power. See it, see it, see it!!... full review

Two impressive and luminous performances. Definitely a must-see dramatic offering at Fringe this year. Grounded and moving, this was a great way to start off my 2015 Fringe experience. ... full review

I've finally found the chance to compose words to my thoughts about this thoughtful, intense, and provoking play. MY SISTER is a journey of twin sisters, Magda and Matilde, and their struggle to find their place in the world. The sisters are played by phenomenal twin actors Emily and Elizabeth Hinkler, who bring such humanity to their roles that at times I forgot I was watching a play, and was instead in their living room. I must say, I was uncomfortable watching. This discomfort and anxiety pierced me like an IV until my veins were pulsing with discomfort. Watching the play unfold does not give its audiences a "good" feeling, but that is not the intention of MY SISTER. It's supposed to sting and move through you, to demand your attention to... full review

When you walk in, you really don't know what to expect. You see the dynamics between two sisters. The tension, the real aspects of sister rivalry and love, all within a very short amount of space. The silence is just as much as the speech. They are transformed to another era, another time, another era, another place. Your heart leaps out when you hear the story of the atrocities of whats going on and you see how these two women interact with whats given to them. How one woman is out in the world but really isn't, and how one is in their room but truly in the world. There was absolutely no dry in the audience. The passion, love, and understanding of paying attention to the world around you allows us to see the true meaning of love to the... full review

"My Sister" was an incredible show. There is so much to rave about! I will begin with the great performances- both solo but especially with their relationship on stage, these women are incredibly moving. I don't believe there was a dry eye in the house at the end, and yet, the show was at times funny and at times enraging! The sense of humor was incredible.... but also the story, and the sense of tension and watching the indoctrination of one sister and then her realization of the truth... and the show must go on.... I don't want to give away too many details. Let me just say that this was a great show, and I hope it continues long after the Fringe Festival!... full review
ELIZABETH COLLINS certified reviewer June 13, 2015
Not that they need another person to tout how amazing this show is, because they have so many great reviews, BUT THIS SHOW WAS SO AMAZING! Both women did such a phenomenal job portraying these characters. The play sucked me into an entirely differently place and time with just one simple set because of their performances. I don't want to give away too much of the show, just go see it, you will not regret it. ... full review

MY SISTER by Janet Schlapkohl marks my first review of the 2015 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Honestly, it sets the bar pretty damn high. "A story of twin sisters fighting to live their dreams as the world attempts to tear them apart." reads the tagline, and that certainly proves accurate. If insufficient. We're a little too used to that verb--tear apart--to feel its full power. Imagine your hand torn apart, until flesh and bone ripped asunder. Or your tongue pulled out of your skull. Nothing that bloody happens on stage. Emotionally, however, that is precisely what happens to these two souls. Emily and Elizabeth Hinkler (real life twin sisters) comprise the entire cast--at least the ones we see. From the moment the play begins, others ho... full review
