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

What if they gave a revolution and nobody came? What are the police to do if no one commits crimes? In The Police the great Polish writer Slawomir Mrozek exercises his customary wit, steel-trap logic and deft theatricality as he develops this idea to hilarious and disturbing conclusions. When a highly efficient police force has suppressed all disloyalty to the government, it must manufacture fake political dissenters in order to secure the existence of the system. The outcome? Bureaucrats gone wild in a scathing comedy about the price we pay to maintain the status quo.
