The Story:
When the image of Jesus Christ appears on the wall of a Tim Horton's restaurant in Natley, Nova Scotia, the town is thrown in to euphoric chaos. Is this appearance a miracle? A hoax? While the townsfolk contemplate difficult questions about faith, life and love, a father quietly wrestles with his own faith as he deals with a tragedy that has left his daughter in a coma. Hilarious, moving and challenging all at the same time, this play has become a Canadian classic.
