Winner of the American College Theatre Festival, this marvelously written theatrical play is the story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in southern Indiana in the early 1930's. When the boy was younger he almost drowned. This trauma and the loss of his mother in the same accident has left him deathly afraid of water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best. Instead, he hires on as a mechanic for the boy's father. The town doesn't have a preacher and the women try to persuade him to preach while he tries to persuade the child to wash. When the preacher finally gets the boy in the river and is washing him, the townspeople mistake the scene for a baptism. They descend on the event and, in the confusion, tragedy ensues.

This production will be presented arena style with all seating on the stage. Though this limits seating capacity, it provides the audience with an intimate theatrical experience.
Show dates are Friday & Saturday, February 3, 4, 10, 11 and Sunday, February 12.

Tickets are $7
