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.

The four performances of the dramatised reading will take place in the Millie Phillips Building, Emanuel Synagogue.
