Winner of the American Theatre Critics Association Award for Distinguished Playwriting
Winner of the American Theatre Critics Association Award for Distinguished Playwriting. A powerful, picaresque and richly humorous study of backwoods religion which has enjoyed widespread success in the nation's leading regional theatres. Dealing with the determination of the Episcopal Bishop of North Carolina to bring the solace and order of organized religion to "the valley that forgot God," the play is both a parable of the good which Christianity can bestow and of the disillusion which can result when its tenets are applied without compassion. "…a significant new play by a major American dramatist…" —Philadelphia City Paper. "a compelling drama…This is theatre you can sink your teeth into." —Philadelphia Journal. "Mr. Linney continues to be one of our most perceptive chroniclers of the folkways of rural America, finding humanity and nobility in the most remote of places." —NY Times. "He has given to us a most minor masterpiece." —Philadelphia Daily News.
