A dark, lyrical, funny new play about community, motherhood, and the investments we make in belief. Agnes La Voie suffers a nervous breakdown in the small upstate town of Hadley, then claims she’s been healed by a visitation from the Holy Mother.
World premiere: Ohio Theatre, September 2001. Produced by New Georges in association with Ripe Time.
“Riveting...a serious and moving study of the persistent human need to believe in a power greater than us.”
“When the miracle does come, it creates a delicious tension that engulfs the audience as much as the actors, right until its nearly perfect resolution.”
