RENNY'S STORY BY Janet S. Tiger
It was the performance of a lifetime - disguised as a Catholic farm
hiding in Nazi controlled Poland, Renny Grynblatt Trajman struggled to
keep herself- and her family - alive. Her story is vividly told in
RENNY'S STORY, by award-winning San Diego playwright Janet S.
RENNY'S STORY is a gripping tale of courage and love amidst the horrors and heartbreak of World War II. As a young Jewish woman in Warsaw, Renny fought in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and even escaped from a death camp - but what happened to Joseph, her young son? Renny Kurshenbaum passed away in 2007, but her story lives on - just as all the stories of the Holocaust must live.
Performed to sold-out houses and standing ovations, the 2006 and 2007 premiere productions were in conjunction with Sullivan Players and Swedenborg Hall, members of the San Diego Performing Arts League, where Tiger was named Playwright-in-Residence of Swedenborg Hall for 2006-7.
Janet S. Tiger's plays have been produced internationally from New York (Off Broadway) to New Zealand and are in popular anthologies in the US and Canada. A graduate of San Diego State University (BA in Comparative Literature, 1976), she has worked as a Hollywood scriptwriter. Local audiences have seen her work at Swedenborg Hall, the Lyceum and POWPAC and her play THE THIRD PARTY was a San Diego Theater Critics Circle Best New Play nominee. Tiger is also the recipient of over 30 national and local award, including the prestigious Combo-NEA Fellowship Grant.
