Angel in the Night
Angel in the Night, by playwright Joanna H. Kraus, is based on the true accounts of a Polish teenager who risked her life by hiding a Jewish family from Nazi soldiers during World War II. It's the compelling story of Mary Szul—named Pawlina in the play—who later in life was honored for sheltering Jewish families. Angel in the Night is directed by Michael RJ Campbell, who brings out a couple of nice performances from actors including Tara Cartozian, a Sacramento State drama student making her Sacramento theater debut as Pawlina, Daniel Dorofeyev as the Nazi officer and Sabrina Fiora as the Jewish mother.
