A shortage of men during World War II in a rural Michigan town causes Myrtle to become a preacher. She ministers to her community with wit, wisdom, a practical approach and insights far ahead of her time. But when the war ends, Myrtle must look to her close-knit family for support, as she battles small-town preconceptions that stand in the way of her continuing ministry.
Issues of inheritance have splintered a family for 20 years before an enterprising sister begins a crusade for change. Playwright Claudia Allen tells this universal story with characteristic warmth and eccentric humor. Performed by a full cast starring Tyne Daly, Sharon Gless, and more.
