The God Box: A one woman,one act play featuring author and actress, Mary Lou Quinlan.
In this engaging one woman, one act play based on the book, Mary Lou explores the laughter and tears of the story of a family in love, in loss and in triumph. When Mary Lou's beloved mother, Mary Finlayson dies, her family is left bereft-until Mary Lou finds her mother's "God Box," or rather, boxes.
Note by note, Mary Lou unearths insights into her mother's compassion, faith, and perserverance, and revelations of her innermost thoughts-nostalgic, surprising, and even a bit shocking. And through the journey, the author discovers her own more empathetic, more engaged self-the woman her mother had believed in all along.
A celebration of love that encompasses the bond between a mother and her daughter, the partnership between a husband and wife, and the connection between a woman and her community, The God Box is a gift for every human being who, regardless of beliefs, trusts in the enduring power of family and friendship.
Proceeds from this play will benefit for Hunterdon Hospice.
