The Savannah Disputation

Mainstage Theater

Written by Evan Smith
Directed by Walter Bobbie


Resurrect this!  When susceptible Catholic spinster Margaret politely admits door-to-door pentacostal missionary Melissa into her home, her seemingly-solid faith starts to waver – much to the chagrin of her feisty sister Mary.  But who's the blasphemer and who's the believer?  Before long, the God-fearing sisters have ambushed their steadfast “guest” with the aid of an unsuspecting local priest, setting the scene for a showdown of truly biblical proportions.
