Miracle on South Division Street

Buffalo, NY might be depressed, but Clara Nowak is not. Staunchly religious, the mother of three is an organizer for her soup kitchen and the caretaker of her family's local claim to fame: a 20-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother commemorating the miraculous night in 1942 when she appeared to Clara's father in his barbershop. But one fateful Christmas Eve, her daughter Ruth announces that she's writing a one-woman play about her grandpa's story - the real story - this family's foundations are shaken to the core. Tom Dudzick's spirited comedy - just in time for the holidays - unspools a tale about believing in the powerful bonds that tie a family together.
