The Miracle Group
"Buckle up and prepare to enjoy … Playwright Sy Rosen brilliantly blends sheer realism with intensely intriguing characters—even though there are dark themes—resulting in an evening filled with laughter and entertainment." —Backstage

"Isolation and desperation and the primal need for intimacy and approval are themes running all though the brutally comedic play." —The Burbank Leader

"A beautifully written comedy by Sy Rosen, who perfectly captures the personality quirks of the motley participants." —The Tolucan Times

"The characters are all unique in their particular brands of neurosis and each one talks about their miracle, giving the audience a chance to see who they really are…or do we ever really know?" —Studio City Sun
By Sy Rosen.

Cast: 3m., 6w. (or 4m., 5w.) This edgy comedy deals with loneliness, fear, courage, the supernatural, deception and romance, as a diverse group of strangers attends an adult extension class to discuss "the miracles that have occurred in our lives." As each person tells of his or her miracle, the stories become more and more fantastic and bizarre. The group eventually bands together against the sinister Agatha, who delights in proclaiming that her miracle is predicting people's deaths. Carl, the most socially challenged of the group, is having a great time even if some of his conversation starters are a bit macabre: "If you were stranded on a snow bank and had to eat your own leg to survive, do you think you'd gain or lose weight?" The evening progresses, and more of these lonely characters reveal their secrets. Just as the class is coming to a conclusion a surprising twist occurs: several members admit they fabricated their miracles. They just came to meet members of the opposite sex! This comedy takes us on a unique emotional journey, one that we all can relate to, as nine hopeful people try to make those all-important personal connections. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 55 minutes.
