Women of Courage: Five Plays by Joanna H. Kraus
Women of Courage: Five Plays by Joanna H. Kraus
Edited by Janet E. Rubin.

 This anthology is a quintet of award-winning plays for the entire family designed to explain and appreciate women's courage both historical and fictional and to inspire visions from tomorrow. The book, with a foreword by Dr. Nellie McCaslin, offers an introduction to the plays and accompanying strategies for teaching. It is a valuable collection for the director, teacher, parent, librarian and student. The Ice Wolf is an Inuit tale of a fair child born into a superstitious village. Their prejudice forces the child to seek refuge in the forests in the transformed shape of a wolf. This classic fantasy has had over a hundred productions nationally and internationally. In Mean to Be Free, Tom and Hedy, brother and sister, flee slavery via the dangerous Underground Railroad with help from Harriet Tubman, and learn what it means "to stand tall." This fictionalized journey is based on pre-Civil War history and people who assisted Tubman, such as Oliver Johnson, head of the New York City Anti-Slavery Office and Thomas Garrett, the Quaker who said, "If this be a crime for which one goes to prison, then there must be some excellent people there." When the Nazis invade Marseilles in Remember My Name: A Story of Survival in Wartime France, young Rachel is sent away on a moment's notice. With only a false name to protect her, she is terrified. As she matures, she assists the Marquis, fighting for her own life and for France. Inspired by the history of LeChambon-sur Lignon in Auvergne, this play was the first prize winner of the 1989 IUPUI National Playwriting competition. Angel in the Night is based on the true story of Marysia Szul, a Polish Catholic teen who hid and protected four Jewish refugees during World War II. This play won a 1996 American Alliance for Theatre and Education Distinguished Play Award. Sunday Gold is set in the North Carolina Gold Rush era of the 1840s when 12-year-old Lizzie, a rocker girl at the mine, and her coworker, Annie, a hired-out slave, learn that not all gold is in the ground and that friendship is stronger than prejudice. 6x9—342 pages.
