The Diviners by Jim Leonard, Jr.

A challenged boy. A divine gift. God's gonna trouble the waters.


Set during the Depression, "The Diviners" is the story of 14-year-old Buddy Layman, a troubled boy who also has a gift: Buddy can divine water. But he is also deathly afraid of it. Haunting and beautiful, this powerful play has echoes of "Our Town" and "Of Mice and Men" but is definitely a fresh face that will have you laughing one minute, crying the next. Gorgeous gospel/spiritual-style music richly underscores the production.


Show run is now over. We thank all those who participated and attended. Watch for our next season announcement in May 2014!
