The Salvation Business
Having risen to fame throughout the 1920s as a faith healer and charismatic evangelical preacher, Sister Abigail now finds herself in 1936 broken, disgraced and abandoned by the two men who mattered most: her Lord and her manager, ‘Uncle’ Joe Johnson. Alone in a hotel room, Sister Abby plots one final resurrection of her career while wrestling with the ghosts of her past. The Salvation Business explores the personal toil behind Sister Abby’s public triumphs and humiliations. A play about faith, show(wo)manship, and the lengths one woman will go to to save her soul.
