“A work of both generosity and charm…This is one of those welcome plays that send you out into the night feeling better than when you went in.” Daily Telegraph
“A pleasing mix of the prosaically real…and the weirdly unreal – mysterious healings, visions and unlikely romance.” The Independent

When Sadie, her mother, step-father and grandmother arrive at the caravan park of a religious shrine in rural Ireland, a series of increasingly weird happenings and crazy comedy ensue. It’s a hilarious spiritual road-trip centred on the feuding family but is set against the backdrop of a much bigger question about religion and asks is there something out there?

SMALL MIRACLE is a new play written by Colchester Mercury Theatre Company member Neil D’Souza, recently seen in the hit The Man of Mode at the National Theatre.

Can the family get their relationships and their journey back on the road? Can a woman with a dodgy heart find love with the toilet-fixing park manager? And is God in the shrine? Finding out the secret that lies at the heart of their journey will be a lot of fun!

Cast includes Souad Faress, Kulvinder Ghir, Gina Isaac, Peter Dineen and Ella Vale

Creatives include Janice Dunn (Director), Chloe Lamford (Designer), Tony Simpson (Lighting Designer) and Marcus Christensen (Sound Designer)
