Of Divine Interest
Location: Southfield, Michigan
This play is the winner of the Community Theatre Association of Michigan’s (CTAM) 2020 PLAYWRITING CONTEST.
Directed by Barbara Mathers
and Nancy Florkowski.
Jerry enjoyed retirement for about a minute. His retirement buddy, and house mate Fran has to now hear him complain about the boring life he has ended up with. Giving in to a repetitive daytime TV ad, he sends in for a genealogy review.
Things heat up when the FBI delivers the world changing results. As news spreads, his life now has to accommodate TV reporters in his living room, foreign spies, security guards, pilgrims on the porch, clergy in the dining room, professional escorts, and Aunt Sylvia – a bigger than life mystery herself.
Everyone wants a piece of him – literally. All this forces Jerry to choose his lane. What does he really have faith in? What has he been missing that would make retirement a new beginning instead of a drawn out end? Oh, and the Pope is on the way.
Rehearsals will, in general, be Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Show dates will be Jan 28-30, Feb 4-6, 11-12, 2022
