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
In a field outside Cork, three women carry on a lively conversation. One is a 39 year old writer, another a 30 year-old housewife (in 60’s dress), and the third a 20 year-old wild child in the latest 1930s fashion. It soon becomes clear that the writer is talking to her own mother and grandmother, captured in their primes as well as in the present moment. The natural balance between mothers and daughters is turned topsy-turvy by this new arrangement, and Hugh Leonard exploits this situation to its fullest comic potential.
Veteran Chicago actor and director Charles Gerace (Well of the Saints) directs this Chicago premiere from the Tony-winning author of Da and A Life, featuring Alyson Green, Julie Daley, and Erin Myers (A Dublin Bloom).
