MIRACLE ON SOUTH DIVISION STREET
By Tom Dudzick
Dir: Kenneth Kimmins
1st reh – June 19
Opening – July 5
Closing – July 15
Clara Nowak and her three adult children have always known they were special, ever since the Virgin Mary appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop. Since then, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ 20-foot commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. And now daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the whole world will know. As her plans for theatrical immortality unfold, the entire family’s faith is shaken when surprising new information is revealed. A heartfelt family comedy.
(20s – 30s): the eldest child; loud, outspoken, and opinionated; she is her mother's daughter; an avid bowler, and product of her urban environment; Beverly is sarcastic and wickedly funny.
(20s – 30s): the middle child; a bit gangly and awkward; not the type men throw themselves at but has an appealing energy and spark; she is very intelligent and a little classier than her siblings; an aspiring actress and writer who wants to move to NYC.
(20s – 30s): the baby; a simple but witty guy who enjoys needling his sisters; works as a garbage man, and is happy in his work; Jimmy loves living in Buffalo; he has a big heart and kind disposition.
