" Whatever God's dream about us may be, it seems certain it cannot come true unless we cooperate." Stella Terril Mann
|"Gifts" is an evocative and theatrically staged performance of original stories and characters, dramatic literature, poetry, and prose. Many literary voices celebrate the gifts of our shared humanity and creative spirit.

This performance presentation includes the work of poets, Emily Dickinson and Madeleine L'Engle; playwrights, William Luce and Michael Cristofer; authors Ruth Gendler, Kim Chernin and Norman Cousins, as well as original stories and characters.
