This is a relevant, insightful story for a generation facing a resurgence of fear and extremism. Cyla’s Gift is a train-hopping, border-crossing story of danger, adventure, magic, loss, and the power of storytelling. When the ghost of her grandmother, Cyla Tine, starts visiting Samara in the middle of the night, she is compelled to travel through interwoven family stories of survival. Lerman asks: “What happens when your family lineage stops with you? What happens to the stories and memories of generations past?” Written & Performed by Samara Lerman | Directed by Kelly Kitchens. Sponsored in part by the Holocaust Center for Humanity.
