About This Event
Where there’s love, there’s life.
Rachel Berger is well known as a comedian who delivers rapid-fire lines with assertive virtuosity. In Hold The Pickle however, she leaves the microphone behind and opens the door of her parents’ delicatessen to deliver stories of love, loss and longing, fear and belonging.
Oh, and schnitzels. This is no mere sentimental nostalgia trip, Berger creates an emotionally rich portrait of her parents’ life story where
scores of characters come to life to raise our spirits and fill our hearts. Experience the laughter, the tears, the tenderness and experience the love.
“Do whatever you can to get a ticket….a story that will fill your heart with joy.” Broadway World.com
“After a standing ovation, plenty of emotion was evident among the audience but they were laughing through their tears.” Herald Sun, Sunday
