Get a glimpse inside Chelsea Marcantel's play "Everything is Wonderful" as Director Noah Himmelstein breaks down the relationship between Jacob, an Amish man whose two sons were killed in a tragic accident, and Eric, the non-Amish man responsible for their deaths.
When an Amish couple’s two sons are killed in a car accident, the family struggles to maintain their faith and cling to their way of life. In an act of unfathomable forgiveness, they take in Eric, the wayward young driver of the car. But Eric’s mistake cracks open the family’s dark history and brings home their eldest daughter, Miri, who was excommunicated five years earlier. Miri returns to find her family in shambles, the man who killed her brothers living in the barn, and the man who drove her away intent upon marrying her younger sister. Without a way forward, this insular community must seek to heal the deep wounds of the past, forcing everyone into a new kind of reckoning."Everything is Wonderful" runs through Feb 24, 2019 at Baltimore's Everyman Theatre.
