“The Diviners” (A Drama) to be held at Alamance Fine Arts Academy: NOTE: This show has post-poned and will run this summer. Dates TBA
When C.C. Showers, a back-sliding preacher, leaves the pulpit in Kentucky, he ends up in the tiny town of Zion, Indiana. He finds a job, and a place to lay his head, in the home of widowed mechanic, Ferris Layman. The people of Zion welcome Showers with suspicion, curiosity, and ultimately joy — the town has been without a preacher for many years. Showers rebuffs the town’s efforts to set him up in their non-existent pulpit, and focuses his attention on helping the mechanic’s son, Buddy, a wild and innocent young man with a disturbed mind and some uncanny abilities. The death of his mother by drowning, and his own near-death, have given Buddy a powerful fear of water. When his refusal to wash gives Buddy a bad case of the ringworm, Showers makes it his mission to calm Buddy’s fears and introduce him to water as a friend. Jim Leonard Jr.’s The Diviners is a luminous story of religion and magic, faith and doubt, love and grief. This drama features a strong ensemble of well-rounded friends and neighbors, with a sweet friendship at its core.
