Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The world according to David Ives is a very strange place indeed. His plays create a near perfect inspection of the English language – and of the audience’s aptitude for perplexity and joy. Ives’s characters are thrust into black holes called “Philadelphias,” where the simplest desires are uproariously frustrated. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to write no less a masterpiece than Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in an invented language in which “welcome” translates as “velcro” and “fraud” comes out as “freud.”
