Directed by JoAnn Johnson

In an industrial soup kitchen in the Bronx, Shelley is a nun struggling to pray and questioning her life’s work. Her world in service to the needy, alongside a Dominican immigrant security guard and joke-writing “regular,” is rocked when a rainbow-haired college drop-out comes to volunteer. The girl’s enthusiasm and erratic behavior will change the course of their lives.

With touching humor this motley group unravels the intricacies of need, the vagaries of compassion and limits of forgiveness.

“…a quartet of fascinating characters who find themselves stuck together on the same stage at the same time.”

Brett Campbell, Oregon Artswatch

“…the theater’s been killing it lately, setting the bar heavenly high.”
