A Simple Theatre, St. Petersburg's newest professional theatre company in residence at Eckerd College, will perform Miracle on South Division Street by Tom Dudzick July 31 through Aug. 17.
ST. PETERSBURG – A Simple Theatre, St. Petersburg's newest professional theatre company in residence at Eckerd College, will perform Miracle on South Division Street by Tom Dudzick July 31 through Aug. 17.

The show will run Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at Bininger Theatre on the Eckerd College campus, 4200 54th Ave. S. St Petersburg.

The play is directed by Artistic Director Gavin Hawk, associate professor of theatre at Eckerd College. The cast includes Bonnie Agan, Georgia Mallory Guy, Becca McCoy and Stephen Ray.

Miracle on South Division Street is the story of the Nowak family, who live amid the urban rubble of Buffalo, New York’s East Side. Maybe the neighborhood is depressed, but not Clara, the family matriarch. She happily runs her soup kitchen and tends to the family heirloom – a 20-ft. shrine to the Blessed Mother which adjoins the house. This neighborhood beacon of faith commemorates the day in 1942 when the Blessed Virgin Mary materialized in her father’s barber shop.

When the play opens, a family meeting is in progress. Daughter Ruth divulges her plan to finally “go public” with the family miracle by creating a one-woman play about the sacred event. But during the course of the meeting, the entire family’s faith is shaken to its core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel. The results are heartfelt and hilarious.

The New York Times called Miracle on South Division Street “a sprightly, gentle comedy, where revelations that might remake a family's sense of itself are each rolled out in service of laughter.”
