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. With their comfortable equilibrium threatened by this intruder who denounces the Catholic faith, they enlist the help of parish priest Father Murphy. 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.

Theater Pizzazz

"Hilarious, enlightening and gripping...There are marvelous one liners and good character development. But the play loses steam, ending with a whimper, rather than a bang. If it were cut by five or ten minutes toward the end, it would be more powerful. That said, the performances were splendid, as was the direction by Katrin Hilbe. The writing is mostly interesting and probing." Full Review
