    A blistering August in upstate New York. No rain in 3 months. And the little daughter of Lila, a young worship leader at a charismatic church, doesn’t wake up one morning. Lila’s estranged sister Franny, a lesbian who fled the church seven years prior, returns home for the first time for what she thinks is a funeral; only to find that her sister and the church she left behind are determined to pray for the toddler’s resurrection—no matter how long it takes. A play about incongruous faith, sisters, and what happens when we pray for something dead to come back.
