    Blurb:                During the late fall of 2015, members of Life Jacket Theatre Company traveled to southern Florida to interview the residents of Miracle Village, a rural community for sex offenders buried deep in sugarcane fields.  The team has transformed its research into a moving and unflinching play about darkness, uncertainty, and the painful process of healing in small-town America.  This play uses a fusion of personal interviews and found text crafted by Travis Russ, award-winning playwright and director, as well as traditional Methodist hymns and original songs composed and arranged by Priscilla Holbrook, from the band Susan Jane.  Life Jacket Theatre Company’s recent production of Gorey:  The Secret Lives Of Edward Gorey, was a Critics’ Pick by the New York Times and Time Out New York, was nominated for a 2017 Drama Desk Award, seven 2016 New York Innovative Theatre Awards, and two 2017 Henry Hewes Design Awards (granted by the American Theatre Wing).
