Meet the Nowaks of Buffalo, NY. Clara and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942 when the Blessed Mother appeared to Grandpa in his barbershop! Since then, the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ 20-foot commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. And now daughter Ruth unveils her plan to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know!” However, as her plans for theatrical immortality unfold, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the very core when a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel.
The results are heartfelt and hilarious.

TOM DUDZICK, playwright. Tom’s first play, Greetings!, opened at NYC’s John Houseman Theatre and starred Darren McGavin. His semi-autobiographical comedy Over the Tavern has had over two hundred productions, breaking many box office records throughout the U.S. The Irish adaptation, Over the Pub, broke the box office record at Cork Arts Theatre in Ireland.
