Harking back to the charged family dynamics of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night, the new play Miracles in the Fall -- winner of the 2013 Dionysos Cup Festival of New Plays -- is a powerful investigation of the intersection of secrets, faith and forgiveness. Set in 1968 Detroit, the play centers on a young Dominican nun, Clare Connelly, who is the caretaker of her alcoholic father, Jimmy. In due course, she uncovers the very secrets that have thrown a pall of shame over the family for many years. A maverick Jesuit priest and Clare's own brother Charlie inspire and challenge Clare in equal measure throughout this sensitive and intelligent drama. Written by local playwright Chuck O'Connor (High Hard Ones), Miracles in the Fall now comes to Greenhouse Theater Center. Learn More

The funny scenes worked better than the more serious ones - very clever and well written. For those who haven't seen Pulp Fiction in a while, it might help to watch the movie again beforehand (I'd forgotten lots of scenes, which made it a little confusing sometimes).

This was a real hoot! The writing was excellent. It was such fun to hear the story in Elizabethan English. The actors were great; they really were true to the orginal characters in spite of the cumbersome language. And the costumes were inspired.
