Through Hilbe’s direction and the ensemble of designers and actors, we see a clear picture of the battle for faith in us all. While letting us laugh at a very deep issue of the dangers of dogmatic religious beliefs, Hilbe’s interpretation of Smith’s masterpiece leaves us all reflecting on our own belief systems and eating a bit of humble pie, too.

Under Katrin Hilbe’s direction, the strong cast, Equity actors all, breathe life into Mary, Margaret, Melissa, and Father Murphy, and for all of their quirks, it’s a pleasure to spend the time watching them trying to figure out where they belong in the grand and mysterious scheme of things.

This battle of the Bibles opens with malevolent Mary, an observant Catholic, forcefully pushing Melissa, an evangelical would-be missionary, out the door and threatening to call the police if she ever returned. ...What follows is hilarious, enlightening and gripping. ... The performances were splendid, as was the direction by Katrin Hilbe.
