“WHY SHOULDN’T GOD SEND A MIRACLE TO MERTHYR TYDFIL?”

Is something incredible happening in Merthyr? Carys, a sixteen-year-old school student claims to have received the stigmata: Christ’s wounds from the Cross. Are her wounds a sign from God? Carys thinks so, she wants to tell the world and demands to be heard. Sian, Carys’s teacher is not so sure. Filled with doubt, Sian believes silencing Carys will keep her safe, but can she make sense of what is happening to her young pupil?

LISA PARRY’s fierce and exhilarating new play is an exploration of faith and truth, a hymn to community, and a testament to the power of young people. The play was shortlisted for the inaugural Theatre Uncut Political Playwriting Award, and is to be presented online in 2021, as a co-production between Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, and Theatre Uncut.
