MAC Theater Presents Miracle on South Division Street
December 1 @ 7:30 pm$20 – $23
This is the story of the Nowak family from Pawtucket, R.I. Maybe the neighborhood is depressed, but not Clara, the family matriarch. She happily runs the soup kitchen and maintains the family heirloom – a shrine to the Blessed Mother that adjoins the house. This neighborhood beacon of faith commemorates the day in 1942 when the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in her father’s barbershop! A family meeting is in progress when the play opens – on Christmas Eve. Ruth shares her plans to finally make the family miracle public with a one-woman play. During the meeting, however, a deathbed confession shakes the entire family’s faith to the core and unravels the family legend.
Tickets are $20 for members and $23 for non-members.
