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

It was not what I expected (I expected wild, wacky and funny stories), which left me slightly disappointed immediately after the show. The more I thought about it, however, the more I liked the idea and appreciated the stories shared. It gets pretty heavy at times with some of the stories, but overall is an interesting message and a thought-provoking/conversation starting topic.

If you did it, there’s probably a story behind it. Whether it was love or lust, shy or sexy, awkward or awesome or somewhere in between, chances are you remember your first sexual experience. It’s one of the few things almost every person on the planet has in common, yet we rarely talk about it. Until now…
