The Diviners

By Jim Leonard, Jr.

March 16 - 24, 2018

Winner of the American College Theatre Festival, this marvelously theatrical play is the story of a disturbed young
man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930s.  When the boy was young, he almost
drowned.  This trauma and the loss of his mother in the same accident has left him deathly afraid of water.  The preacher, set
on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best.  He works as a
mechanic for the boy’s father.  The town doesn’t have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach while he tries to
persuade the child to wash.  "The Diviners" is in turns humorous, beautiful, and tragic; and surprisingly speaks of many present-day
concerns with gentle wisdom.

Crimes of the Heart

By Beth Henley

May 11 - 19, 2018

The scene is Hazlehurst, Mississippi, where the three Magrath sisters have gathered to await news of the family patriarch,their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital.  Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach.  Their troubles, grave and yet somehow hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her.
