The work will be performed by actress Maria Vargo and directed by Leonardo Defilippis of Saint Luke Productions.

In “Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy,” audiences experience the spirit and life of Polish mystic, Saint Faustina. A parallel modern story within the drama offers audiences a connection to current moral issues. Audiences are calling the production a “wake-up call.”
