Little Women
Over the River 2009

During WWII, six women gather at the church to roll Bandages and plan the churches 75th anniversary. Overseeing things is Edith, the pastor’s wise-cracking wife who dispenses Red Cross smocks and witty repartee to Luby, whose son is fighting in the Pacific; Mae Ellen, the church’s rebellious organist who wants to quit but hasn’t the courage; Olene, who dreams of a career in Hollywood; Sammy, a shy newcomer with a secret; and Vera, an influential Baptist with a secret of her own. When Luby learns her son has been wounded, she confounds the others by blaming the vulnerable Sammy.


Twenty -Five years later, our “First Baptist Six” reunite. Back to reconcile with Luby - whose son died of his wounds - is Sammy, whose own son is now in Vietnam; and Olene, whose flashy show business career will set the town on its ear . There to welcome them are Vera, her secret still safe; Mae Ellen, still rebellious and looking for an escape; and Edith, whose biggest challenge isn’t the church’s upcoming centennial bur revelations that shake relationships formed over a quarter of a century. With humor and pathos, these six very different women find comfort, forgiveness and redemption in each other. Winner of multiple playwriting awards


When it snows on a May Day in Indiana, Sister Columba, an elderly rheumatic nun, asks St. Joseph to take her where the weather is warm. St. Joseph takes her, the convent, and six other nuns who happen to be in the convent at the moment, to the warm sands of Nevada--just outside of Las Vegas. Las Vegas is a shock to the nuns and to St. Joseph, and the nuns and St. Joseph have a startling effect on Las Vegas. This bustling resort town gives up gambling and takes up contemplation; the Bible becomes a best seller; a mission priest is the rage of the nightclub crowd; three dancing girls from the Silver Dollar, Peaches, Boots, and Baby, decide to take the veil. But: the nuns have their problems too. There is real-estate difficulty; they own the convent but not the ground; the younger nuns thumb rides to town; Peaches, Boots and Baby teach one of the sisters a dance routine; and finally the sister in charge finds herself offering to "place a small bet." St. Joseph and the nuns realize they had better go home, so St. Joseph returns the convent and its occupants to Indiana--the occupants at the moment including the proprietor of the Silver Dollar and the Board of Directors of the Amalgamated Night Clubs. "While the play is a farce, the nuns are not farcical characters, nor are they characters of saccharine pietistic tendencies. They are rather the ordinary, gracious, efficient American nuns." --Sister M. Agnese, S.P., Catholic Theatre. "We highly recommend this play and are confident it will answer quests for a play that is both humorous and charming." --The Catholic Alumnae Quarterly.
