SKIPPER ZOPPETTI certified reviewer June 04, 2015
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... full review

"MY SISTER" is a profoundly moving play about a pair of twins, portrayed and performed brilliantly by real life twins, Emily and Elizabeth Hinkler. Dramatically and comedically the two sisters create the changing world of pre-war Berlin. One sister a hospital worker by day and cabaret singer by night, performed honestly and exuberantly by Emily Hinkler, is naive in her understanding of the upcoming dangers of the Nazi party as they gain political momentum. The other sister, stricken with cerebral palsy, portrayed by Elizabeth Hinkler with depth and complexity, writes her sister's Cabaret pieces. Her dire circumstances and her addiction to the international news on a short wave radio allow her to understand the gravity of their dile... full review

Great storyline... And I love anything that has to do with the Nazi Germany era! The acting was well done..... and I love the concept of real twin sisters playing twin sisters. The sister who had Cerebral Palsy nailed it on the acting. I've taken care of many cerebral palsy patients and I technically thought she had cerebral palsy in real life! A truly interesting story and original on the twin factor! Hospital storyline was a great add in and true to form......... 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

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
