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.

Susan, a young wealthy New York socialite, lives only for Susan. When she discovers a new religious cult, she dives head first into her latest fad. Eager to spread the word of her transformation, Susan goes straight to her closest friends, who are, as usual, less than enthusiastic about her newest pastime. It’s a sparkling and sophisticated comedy that you’re sure to love.
