At a home in Connecticut, some couple friends gather for a relaxing weekend and for an announcement Susan Trexel has for them. She has just returned from Europe and while away on vacation has found God. Her newfound religion not only takes a toll on her friends as she critiques their lifestyles, but the plot comes to a head when we learn that she has been a non-existant figure in the life of her daughter and husband. Crothers play is part cocktail party comedy and part social critique that was eventually turned into a film in 1940 starring Joan Crawford.
"While Susan and God is a gentle play that comes to old-fashioned conclusions, the journey is filled with authentic longing, joy, anger, frustration and grace, with the women in particular so alive, it's hard not to think that only a woman could have written them." - The Dallas Morning News, Read More
Susn and God premiered on Broadway at the Plymouth Theatre in October 1937.
