.‘Eight Nights’ at Pear Theatre

The past isn’t so far removed from the present, and playwright Jennifer Maisel showcases that fact in her play “Eight Nights.” Winner of the 2021 Ovation Award for Best Playwriting, the play tells the story of Chanukah from 1949 to 2016. Protagonist Rebecca Blum arrives in the U.S. at just 19 years old after surviving the Holocaust, and experiences the holiday differently year after year with loved ones while trying to forget her traumatic past. The play is a great opportunity for families to learn more about the power of Chanukah, and to learn about how to make the future better for our collective society.
