Yom Hashoah Event: Big Sonia

When: Thu., May 2, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $7-$10.
In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski — great-grandmother, businesswoman and Holocaust survivor — runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than 30 years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, "Big Sonia" also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all. Presented in partnership with the Virginia Holocaust Museum Sponsored by Dr. Nathan and Lisa Zasler
