The Diviners

Written by Jim Leonard, Jr.
Directed by Edd Miller
Performance Dates: January 7 - 22, 2011

In a small farm community during the depression, water and faith are in short supply. A charismatic but back-sliding preacher drifts into town and meets a gentle but misunderstood boy with the gift of divining or water-witching. The two outcasts find a common bond and help each other divine for truth, faith and hope. When the townspeople demand the preacher return to a way of life he no longer believes in, it drives both men to a crisis of trust. This earthy, funny, poignant is profoundly tragic and has echoes of Steinbeck's classic depression era work. The characters are simple but good people searching for hope and something to believe in.
