Savannah_7_webFamily beliefs leads to a religious showdown in The Savannah Disputation, opening Oct. 1 at The Old Globe Arena Stage.

The Savannah Disputation is a contemporary comedy about two Catholic spinsters: the good-natured, sometimes susceptible Margaret and the no-nonsense, always spirited Mary. When Margaret welcomes a door-to-door Pentecostal missionary into their home her conviction begins to waver. Mary quickly hatches a plan to bring her sister back into the fold by inviting their unsuspecting parish priest to dinner, leading to a religious shakedown and a theological showdown about the true meaning of faith.

The cast of The Savannah Disputation features Kimberly Parker Green (Melissa), Mikel Sarah Lambert (Margaret), Nancy Robinette (Mary) and James Sutorius (Father Murphy).

Evan Smith’s The Savannah Disputation enjoyed a successful run at New York’s Playwrights Horizons in 2009, as did his previous plays, Psych and The Uneasy Chair.
