Bella, An Immigrant’s Tale by actress and playwright, Vicki Summers is a one-woman play that chronicles the remarkable life journey of Vicki’s beloved grandmother from the pogroms of Russia (modern day Ukraine), to a new life in America as a Jewish immigrant—filled with courage, humor and love. The play is even more relevant today with the current crisis in Ukraine. Following the performance, there will be a slideshow of photos of the actual people portrayed, as well as a Q&A with Vicki.
Vicki has performed the play throughout New England as well as in a few other states. She was honored to have been selected in 2019 to perform her play at the L.A. Women’s Theater Festival.
