BWW Reviews: THE SAVANNAH DISPUTATION Offers Saucy and Serious WitBWW Reviews: THE SAVANNAH DISPUTATION Offers Saucy and Serious Wit
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - May 4, 2014

Portland Stage closes its 2013-2014 season with a sharp production of Evan Smith's saucy, yet serious comedy, The Savannah Disputation, as play which examines the foibles of faith and the thorny issues of religious dogma. Smith's 2009 play, set in his native Savannah, recounts the story of two aging sisters, Mary and Margaret, whose devout Catholicism is challenged by the visit of a fundamentalist missionary, Melissa. Engaged in a dialogue against their will, the sisters soon find themselves plunged into a full-fledged theological disputation, which prompts them to call for reinforcement from their parish priest. The ensuing heated and hilarious conversation tests the tenacity of each of the character's beliefs. (more...)
