She was just another Black-Jewish girl growing up in Berkley…until her family moved into a commune. DEBORAH Swisher’s Hundreds of Sisters & One Big Brother is a funny harrowing look at how utopic idealism of the 1960’s has affected the next generation. Hundreds of Sisters & One Big Brother is Deborah Swisher’s experiences growing up with a family of, oh, about 2000. Despite the initially good intentions present at the groups founding, over time, “paradise” changed. While providing a rarely seen glimpse into a slice of American counter-culture the play also raises essential questions about the definition of family, growing up, and leaving home
