Interview with star, Norma Cohen

 ‘Jewish Checkov. Nothing happens, but everyone changes.’ (LA Radio, 2017)

‘Gail Louw had us roaring with laughter at the sharp jibes the two threw at each other. Familiar territory for many in the audience I thought from the gales of laughter.’ (Sussex Jewish News, 2017) 

“Standing ovation, full house, wild laughter, mountains of charm, what a wonderful evening.” (Theatre 40, Beverley Hills)

‘And when you walk out of the theater, I guarantee you will feel as if you have just witnessed two sisters who have gone through hell and manage to find their way back into each other’s lives just when they need each other the most. Two Sisters will definitely resonate with anyone who’s ever been part of a family.’ An exquisite play.’ (Broadway World)

Rika and Edith, two close and caring sisters, are about to discover a shocking truth about their past. Can they adapt or will they now, after seventy years, become strangers? Set on a kibbutz in Israel in 1991, TWO SISTERS reveals the politics, rivalry, sweetness and sadness of the sisters’ lives; two journeys that are inextricably entwined. It explores relationships between siblings and those enmeshed in emotional ties with wildly differing perceptions of past events. It looks at the realities of growing old; maintaining or relinquishing independence and the need for others; at selfishness, guilt and regret.
