The Bishop’s Wife

December 3-12, 2021

 Dejected by his efforts to raise money to build a cathedral, Bishop Henry Brougham beseeches heaven for guidance, and is visited immediately by Dudley who claims to be an angel. Henry is skeptical, then annoyed, when Dudley ingratiates himself into the household as his assistant -- and worse, wins the attentions of Henry's long-suffering and kindly wife. When Dudley continues to intervene in Henry's struggles, the bishop decides to challenge heaven. As a radio play, the actors will be costumed but will have scripts in hand.

IMPORTANT TICKET POLICY UPDATE, AS OF SEPTEMBER 1,2021:
