The Eighth Order


Nancy Kiefer

Published by Dramatic Publishing

2 Male 4 Female

The time is the 1930s and the place: a small Midwestern town

Charlotte Steele, a down-to-earth single parent struggling to support herself and her two children, is also grappling with an extraordinary prediction concerning her son, Philip: that he will speak with an angel and have the power to raise up the dead

After having denied the prophecy for years, Charlotte comes to realize that there are forces at work far greater than her own fear and disbelief

This play illuminates the power of the human spirit as we balance the struggle to survive in the world against the impenetrable miracles that abound in our lives
