Taking place in Savannah, Ga., this one-act play tells the story of two elderly, Catholic sisters and the day their life changes when a fundamentalist door-to-door evangelist steps into their home. Following the initial meeting is a comical and thought-provoking journey of self-discovery, petty revenge and meditation on the human condition that will leave the audience’s minds churning about what they believe themselves.
Directed by Department Head Camille Hallstrom, “The Savannah Disputation” will, she says, be “a wonderful show, full of delightful farce, but it also wrestles with the nature of truth, relationships and loneliness. Likely everyone on either side of its issues will get offended by something in the show, yet the play ultimately demonstrates compassion for its characters in their various struggles in this vale of tears.”
