Click here for tickets…”We will take your imagination on a journey. This play is full of biblical allusions, starting with its setting in Zion, Indiana during the Great Depression. But it deals with themes from today’s headlines. We see religion and religious interpretation has imprinted our society. The influence of the extremes of every belief system have some sort of impact on our world daily. In its purest form most of these belief systems are founded on love and compassion. But mankind has been known to pollute these belief systems by sprinkling in their own agendas leading to tragic results as it does in The Diviners.”

The Diviners is a play by Jim Leonard, Jr. It takes place in the fictional town of Zion, Indiana during the 1930s/Great Depression era.

A “slice of life” play, “The Diviners”, takes the viewers intimately close to the main characters :

  • CC Showers- having a crisis of faith and purpose
  • Buddy – who can mysteriously “feel” when water is near, yet fears it to the point of phobia.
  • Ferris – A single father trying to raise two challenging kids in the depression.
  • Jennie Mae – forced to grow-up too soon, facing normal coming of age feelings
  • Towns people who each have a point of view and in their desire to achieve what they believe to be righteous and true, cause distraction and calamity.
