Award-winning playwright Maura Campbell’s lyrical tale of genderfluid teen Carolyn, whose beloved sister Mary is obsessed with the martyred Saint Bernadette (possibly living in their Ouija board). Their supernatural experiments yield lessons on love—but is love more powerful than death? Burgeoning queer identity, memories of dazzling Alaskan snowscapes, and a healthy dose of magical realism, loom large in this tale of salvation and forgiveness.
