The life and times of American theologian Jonathan Edwards are told from the viewpoint of his wife, Sarah, in this production. Adapted from Maggie Rowe's one-person play, the program tells the story of Jonathan and Sarah's love and support for each other through personal hardships and as Jonathan goes from being the leader of a colonial parish to heading the 18th century religious movement known as the "The Great Awakening."
