“The Finger of God,” by Percival Wilde was directed by Tim Moore. Set in the 1950’s, the play examines a man’s conscience in the few hours before he bankrupts an investment firm. A special visitor from his past offers him the choice of riches or redemption.

The third production, “Sorry, Wrong Number,” by Lucille Fletcher, was originally a radio play and in the 1940’s was expanded to a full length motion picture, starring Barbara Stanwyck. Our production was directed by David Myers, who is returning to the group after living for the past twelve years in northern New York state. The tension begins early in the play as Mrs. Stevens, an invalid, dials a wrong number and hears a conversation about a murder to be committed that night.
