duck hunter shoot angel

April 28th-May15th, 2016- Penobscot Theatre Company

From the author of Tuesdays with Morrie comes a story ripped from the headlines—of a tawdry tabloid. When a jaded New York journalist is sent to cover a mysterious angel shooting in Alabama, he expects to find and dutifully perpetuate a hoax, but skepticism turns to surprise as the evidence points to divine intervention. Not since the half man-half alligator story has there been so much media in the swamp, and with all the helicopters, the two guileless, guilt-ridden hunters can hardly think! Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, this uproarious play is a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt message.
