Layer the WallsOliver Lapin Family Day: Layer the Walls

Sunday, Nov 10, 2019 | 2:00 PM
For ages 7-12

What if you discovered an old apartment covered with forty layers of wallpaper that could be peeled back to reveal the stories of past tenants? Layer the Walls explores the stories of a tenement apartment in New York City that was once home to hundreds of new immigrants. Masks, toy-theatre techniques and puppets bring to life the stories of Irish, Italian and Jewish families.

Layer the Walls is underwritten by Taryn & Dan Braun/Marian & Gaby Braun/Braun Enterprises

The Family Performing Arts Series is supported by a grant from The Yako Nesim Polikar Fund for Jewish Youth of the Houston Jewish Community Foundation.
