by Jeff Berryman
"I have a disease. A mostly fatal thing called they-don't-want-me-here-anymore."
Cyrus Manning, preacher at the First Church of Ruin, Texas, must face the possibility that his small town career is finished. This brilliant solo peformance chronicles the tough, often humorous battle of a man chasing the will of God in a time of divine silence.
"Jeff Berryman has taken an evangelical preacher and turned him into the most unexpected thing: a human being. Remarkable." Annie Dillard
