A German woman and her son Ludwig live in Poland, where her husband works at a “factory.” Their lives change after she meets a Jewish girl who grows strawberries as big as a man’s fist. The Strawberry Girl, by contemporary Israeli Playwright Savyon Liebrecht, stars Nancy E. Carroll and is directed by Guy Ben-Aharon. The play deals with the confrontation of blissful ignorance and a tragic, personal intimacy.
