“Coming to See Aunt Sophie” display

A display case full of articles about the play “Coming to See Aunt Sophie” can be found on the first floor by the Reference Desk. The play, written by Dr. Arthur Feinsod from ISU Theater Department, is based on the true story of Jan Karski.  Karski was a courier for the Polish Underground during World War II and his story is heartbreaking and inspiring.

The display includes an autographed book (courtesy of Special Collections) reviews and articles gathered from the world premier this May in Germany and Poland. The play is part of the Crossroads Repertory Theatre season and runs from July 2 to July 22. For ticket information call 237-3334.
