Minister of Sorrow
by Pam Kingsley
Emma is a traveling librarian who, in 1937, delivers books to the rural community living in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky. This winter’s night, she has been called out to deliver a book to the Reverend Cahill; a man she left in her past many years ago. Minister of Sorrow, by Pam Kingsley, is a powerful story of forgiveness, redemption, and the spirit of the mountains.
After watching the performance, join us for a live “talk back” session with the playwright. This is your chance to meet the playwright and help us create an original play.
Tickets are “pay what you think it’s worth”. At the event you will be given a link to donate to SPL. If you would like to donate before the event, we will provide you with a link in the confirmation email when you register. See you at the show!

What you can expect at the lab.
When you come to a Lab-Time workshop performance, you’re not an audience member. You are a fellow collaborator. The script we are presenting is still being worked on. We need your input to help the playwright develop this script into a play that can be performed at local and regional playhouses. You’re not just watching a play, you’re helping create it!
