Show Info

By Karen Hartman
Directed by Noah Himmelstein

With Skye Alyssa Friedman, Danny Gavigan, Nina Hellman, Eva Kaminsky, Alexa Shae Niziak, Mike Shapiro, Alexandra Silber, Steven Skybell, Sky Smith, Dale Soules, Eliza Foss, Rachel Handler and Noah Zachary

Like so many great mysteries, it all began in an attic with a dusty old suitcase... The discovery of a stash of over two hundred letters in three languages opens clues to an untold history in THE LUCKY STAR — a gripping true story of resilience and determination, a family torn apart by war, fighting to emigrate, escape and survive. With scenes alternating between past and present, this mesmerizing drama brings Richard Hollander’s book, Every Day Lasts a Year: A Jewish Family’s Correspondence from Poland to the stage, restoring a family’s uncharted legacy.

Part of 59E59 Theaters VOLT Festival 2022: celebrating the work of Karen Hartman.
