Everybody in This Play is Dying! is a solo show about an actress with cystic fibrosis and how her disease ruined her acting career. It’s a story of faith, as she examines the historical Jesus and his supposed miracles, faith-healers today, both mystics and con-artists, and the place for miracles in a broken world.
