Summary

When the world is fraught and you feel helpless, sometimes sitting in a room together and sharing a story becomes action. Cape Rep Theatre presents Bella, An Immigrant’s Tale, written and performed by Vicki Summers, a fundraiser for Ukrainian refugees.

100 years ago, Bella Indianer escaped the pogroms of Russia, from what is present-day Ukraine, and emigrated to America to start anew. A refugee’s story of resilience, courage and the work of making a new life in a new place, this one-woman show is written and performed by Bella’s grand-daughter, Vicki Summers.

Bella, An Immigrant’s Tale was developed in Art Devine’s Playwriting for Performance class in Cape Rep’s Theatrelab and received it’s debut at Cape Rep in 2017.

All proceeds to benefit the efforts of UNICEF in Ukraine.

Her current goal is to continue touring her play, with a mission not only to tell her grandmother’s amazing story, but to encourage us all to learn and record our own precious family stories before they are lost in time.
