Theatre Discipline Lead: Shannon Kearns

Handlerbegins as a member of Brother Bob's flock, Geordi, is released from prison. Geordi's wife, Terri, takes him back into their home, wary of his hard-drinking history, and still mourning the loss of their little girl in an accident a few years back. Both in low spirits, Terri and Geordi go to Brother Bob's service where Geordi decides to handle a snake for the first time. The resulting tragedy shakes the congregation to its core, but the miracle that follows a few days later lifts it to heights never before reached.

Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan (The Kentucky Cycle), Handler is a gorgeous, poetic, musical story of faith, love, forgiveness and redemption.
