Talking with Angels: Budapest, 1943


Talking with Angels: Budapest, 1943 is based on the true story of four close-knit friends and their encounter with transcendent forces. Over a period of 17 months, despite the chaos in Nazi-occupied Hungary, Gitta Mallasz, Lili Strauss, Joseph Kreutzer, and Hanna Dallos held weekly meetings every Friday afternoon. During these meetings, Hanna received channeled messages from four entities—four distinctly different personalities—who spoke through her and gave counsel and comfort to the quartet. In 1976, Gitta Mallasz, the only survivor of the group, turned the transcripts from these meetings into the book Talking with Angels, which Shelley Mitchell then adapted into this critically acclaimed solo performance.
