EAVESDROPPING ON DREAMS is Rivka Bekerman-Greenberg’s haunting play about three generations of women in one family and their struggles with coming to terms with the aftermath of the Holocaust. Shaina Eberkohn, a 25 year-old medical student, searches for clues about her family’s lost history. Her mother, who is paralyzed by her own demons, adamantly opposes Shaina's obsession. And Shaina’s grandmother, a survivor of the Lodz ghetto and Auschwitz, refuses to help. All three women are caught in a spider’s web comprised of vague memories, distant emotions and nightmarish dreams. As they struggle to make sense of it all, they uncover a harrowing secret that unlocks their mysterious past.
Joining Ms. Cohen and Stephanie Roth Haberle in the cast of EAVESDROPPING ON DREAMS will be Aidan Koehler, Mike Shapiro and Christopher Whalen.
