Grove City College’s Theatre Program will present two plays, “The Diviners” and “The Women of Lockerbie,” from March 2-5 in Ketler Auditorium of the Pew Fine Arts Center on campus.
“The Diviners” by Jim Leonard Jr. tells the story of a disturbed teenage boy who is afraid of water but has a gift for finding underground aquifers and his friendship with a faithless preacher in the fictional town of Zion, Ind., during Great Depression. It is in turns humorous, beautiful and tragic while speaking with gentle wisdom to many present-day concerns. “The Diviners” will be staged at 8:30 p.m. March 2 and 4 and 5:30 p.m. March 3 and 5.
“The Women of Lockerbie” by Deborah Breevort tells the story of Bill and Madeline, parents who came to Lockerbie, Scotland, to look for the remains of their son who perished on Pan Am Flight 103. The play follows the survivors of the crash and how they cope with the tragedy. “The Women of Lockerbie” will be staged at 5:30 p.m. March 2 and 4 and 8:30 p.m. March 3 and 5.
