Visit irenasvow.com to see complete list of rave reviews.

The Directors Company production of Irena's Vow, the new play by Dan Gordon, starring four-time Tony nominee, and three-time Drama Desk Award-winner Tovah Feldshuh and directed by Michael Parva, has added 20 encore performances to its current Off Broadway schedule, by popular demand. Irena's Vow, which has received dozens of critical raves, has broken all house records at its current home. The play marks Ms. Feldshuh's first New York stage appearance since her triumphant (and Tony Award-nominated) turn in Golda's Balcony. Irena's Vow, which is being presented by The Directors Company and Power Productions/Stan Raiff NY, in association with The Polish Cultural Institute in New York, is an Invictus Theatre Company world premiere.

Irena's Vow is a riveting, life affirming story about one of the most courageous and unsung heroines of World War II. During the German occupation of Poland, Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish catholic, was forced to work as head housekeeper for a very prominent German major. Over a two year period of service, Irena would risk her own life in order to save the lives of twelve Jewish refugees whom she secretly took under her care. Irena's Vow is the extraordinary true story of one woman's choice and the twelve lives that would ultimately be saved, or lost - by her decision.

The cast includes Sandi Carroll, Tracee Chimo, Steven Hauck, Scott Klavan, Peter Reznikoff, Thomas Ryan, Gene Silvers, John Stanisci and Maja Wampuszyc.
