A Co-Production with Alley Theatre

A one-woman comedy about a Quiverfull Christian girl. As 15-year old Maranatha waits excitedly for her 29-year old fiancé to carry her off to their wedding, we catch a glimpse into a teenage girl’s thoughts on love, sex, and milkshakes — and watch her pray to a God she loves without question. But as she’s made to wait, night after night, will her faith uphold? Inspired by true events.
