As It Is In Heaven
directed by Ludovica Villar-Hauser
A a revival of the play by Arlene Hutton, set in the Shaker Community in Kentucky in the 1830s. The arrival of Fanny upsets the community's harmony and routine, and her visions reignite their once dramatic form of worship. But the devout Eldress Hannah, who has lived her entire life preparing to walk with angels, finds her leadership threatened and needs proof, no matter the cost to her own soul. Hymns sung a cappella punctuate the scenes of the play, which ends with a joyful explosion of Shaker singing and ecstatic dance.
