GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER (c)- full-length play by Janet S. Tiger
  The cast of the first production of GAWM in San Diego (1990)
          Irene Billingsley(Director)
                    is on the right

Janet S. Tiger's latest commission was to put onto paper - and stage - the life story of Renny Grynblatt, a survivor of World War II Poland.  This amazing lady fought in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and made a daring escape from a Nazi death camp.  The unique side of this will be that Renny's story will be ready in book form by early December, 2005 - and a one-woman one-act of her life will be broadcast on the Internet, hopefully ready by April, 2006.
