My overall impression

Wow. What can I say about the show which left me speechless? The Hinkler sisters’ opening night performance of MY SISTER truly escalated my role from audience member to fly on the wall in their small Berlin apartment. These two have a story to tell- and all should come, not just to hear the words, but to experience a life so different of their own. To have your world popped of what you think it means to struggle and work hard- and to experience only less than a foot away from you at times sisters truly struggling for survival, for life, for their dreams. My gut hurt from watching their pain and pure joy, their awe of their silences, their simplicity in being able to share and be affected by such a time as the Nazi Regime. All I can say more is go see this play, to have a truly cathartic experience- to be brought to life- to feel such feelings and get these needed topics out there of disability and human rights and freedom. You will certainly “pay attention.”
