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

It was fun to watch a talented actress mimicking Sarah Bernhardt as she played the role of Sarah Bernhardt. It was a challenging role, deftly handled. The actor who played the only other character--her beloved valet Pitou--was a joy to watch as he assumed the roles of various people from Sarah's past (including her mother!), as the two struggled to complete her memoirs. Touching, funny, and quite informative.
