Susan's fashionable friends mock her when she claims to have found God. Are they right? Is this just Susan's latest fad and is she using her newfound faith as a distraction from her troubled relationship with her husband and teenage daughter? Or is she onto something that might change her life and theirs? Theatre Three offers a riveting look at this 1937 play by the largely forgotten Rachel Crothers, a groundbreaking female playwright of the early 20th century. Under the thoughtful direction of Lisa Devine, a large, perceptive cast navigates complex emotional relationships where people aren't good or bad, but flawed in ways that chafe or fit together. 'Susan and God' is a gentle play that comes to old-fashioned conclusions, but the journey is filled with authentic longing, joy, anger, frustration and grace, with the women so alive, it's hard to imagine anyone but a woman writing them.
