About the show

Me & She and Manytracks present a theological comedy telling a story in which a crisis of faith arises when seemingly similar beliefs are discovered to be worlds apart. More…

It's Christmas time in Georgia as two Catholic spinsters are suddenly thrust into a verbal smackdown with a perky evangelist who has arrived at their doorstep to save their souls.

Murphy is furious once he realizes the sisters' intention that he play devil’s (or God’s) advocate, and eventually the evening comically dissolves into personal confrontation and revelation.
