The Potomac Playmakers proudly announce the final show of their historic 90th
Anniversary Season, Milan Stitt's "The Runner Stumbles!” In this great
drama, a young nun has died under mysterious circumstances in a remote parish
in northern Michigan, and her superior, Father Rivard, has been charged with
her murder. The action alternates between interrogations, testimony and
scenes from the past which reveal that Father Rivard, who had been banished
to the small, up-country parish, fell in love with Sister Rita; and when
circumstances forced her to move into the rectory with him, his anguish
became unbearable. Their relationship, inevitably, spelt tragedy, but not
until the explosive and surprising climax of the play is the full extent of
their sacrifice made clear and the identity of the murderer revealed.
Produced by special permission from Dramatists Play Service, Inc. and
Directed by Barry Harbaugh with Nic Sigman, "The Runner Stumbles" features
the talented cast of Tom Doty, Larry Doucette, Starlene Hamilton, Kim Jones,
Andrew King, Adam Martens, Maverick McKee, Lexi Oliver, and Andrea Robison.
