After a horrific bus crash kills most of a small Methodist congregation, Maddie Weathers is contacting grieving families and friends to be sure orphaned pets are being cared for. She and a fellow surviving church member who, like her, is wrestling with his faith, begin to hear a disembodied soprano voice singing hauntingly in the sanctuary. This play about profound loss, tested faith and the definition of God is by the popular author of Belles, Five Tellers Dancing in the Rain, and other plays.
Mrs. Townley Had a Pomeranian was wonce part of a larger work, I Hate to Go and Leave This Pretty Sight: Three Short Plays About Saying Goodbye. The work was the winner of the 1996 Hudson River Classics Annual Playwriting Competition.
