Join us as the Extended Run Players from UIW present a reader’s theatre performance of Letters to Sala. An adaptation of the book Sala’s Gift by Ann Kirschner, this play tells the story of Sala Garncarz Kirschner who survived five years in Nazi slave labor camps. Ms. Garncarz Kirschner kept her story hidden for fifty years until she revealed over 350 letters that told her story of survival to her grown daughter Ann. This play shares the experiences of three generations of Kirschner women as they answer the question of what is to be done with these hidden letters, which have been recognized as the greatest find since Anne Frank’s diary.
