North Georgia Theatre: The Diviners
North Georgia Theatre is a professional summer company in residence at Piedmont College. The 2019 Summer Season features The Diviners by Jim Leonard, Jr. This play is the story of a disturbed young man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher in Zion, Indiana in the early 1930s. When the boy was young he almost drowned. This trauma, and the loss of his mother in the same accident, has left him deathly afraid of water. Yet, he is a diviner – he has the uncanny ability to find underground water. The preacher, set on breaking away from a long line of Kentucky family preachers, is determined not to do what he does best.
Ultimately, this is a morality play about friendship, religion, and tragedy. Performances are in the Swanson Center Black Box Theater on June 27-29 at 7:30 PM, and June 30 at 2 PM. General admission tickets are $10 and Piedmont College faculty, staff and students are free. Purchase tickets here or call the box office at 706-778-8500 X1355.
