"A compelling story, beautifully told by Skala who plays about a dozen characters, each transformed into a person with the shifting and retying of a shawl, body language and voice. The script is taut, tasteful and brilliantly constructed. The show opens with a plaintive violin, played by Steve May, and Irena singing a prayer. Simply gorgeous. Irena Sendler is a fabulous, inspiring slice of history told and performed to deliver a simple message: One person can change the world."

"A mournful violin sets the scene for a young Jewish boy’s song. He’s the first of ten people played by the talented Libby Skala, in this moving tale of a woman we’ve never heard of – Irena Sendler, a Polish woman who saved 2,500 Jewish children during the Second World War. As one of the two Kansas high school students in the piece asks, “How come we’ve never heard of this woman?” Skala conjures up these two, and eight more – Irena’s children and neighbours, the teenagers and their teacher – with a single scarf for a prop, along with accents and postures, bringing these honest, brave, real people to us. It’s a powerful story told in a compelling way."

"​It was a remarkable show, enjoyed by all. The staff was thoroughly impressed by your performance and received complements for the remainder of the day. I hope you enjoyed it as much as everyone else. There was a member of the audience who is the daughter of a Survivor, she was very appreciative of the show and thought you were wonderful! I look forward to the opportunity to work with you to present it again."

"Your Irena Sendler performance was stellar. I have had email after email telling me how much they enjoyed it. One woman emailed the Mayor and Town Council telling them how much library programs have affected her life. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"A winning, true story. An accomplished, charming actress. A sell-out. Libby Skala brings us a story that we should have all heard. We all know of Oskar Schlindler of ‘Schindler’s List’ yet Irena rescued more than twice the souls and nobody knows about her. Libby rectifies this wrong in a perfect, stunning performance that shows the best that theatre can be. And the buzz is reflecting this."
