Robert Schenkkan set his play in the rural South in a church that still practices snake handling. After being bitten, one adherent goes on a strange series of adventures questioning the nature of love, life, and religion.
“Christopher R. Boltz’s lighting and set design — the bare frame of a church, the jagged light of a forest — is superb. (When the characters simulate driving, the give-and-play of light on their faces is highly effective.)” — Donald Monro, Fresno Bee
