‘Secret Lives of the Divine’

High Wit Productions presents Sarah Syverson’s comedy, “Secret Lives of the Divine” Sept. 9-18 at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts.

“The Secret Lives of the Divine takes you through an entertaining, yet deeply and uniquely poignant interaction with the cosmos, from 6-year-old Henry who’s battling the monsters lurking under his bed to Jamal, an Indian Guru who’s working for QWest to pay the ashram bills to the 65-year-old Stella, a Jewish lady attending her first Zen retreat. Stella is the link among the various characters.

Sarah brilliantly reveals Stella’s evolution and transformation as she begins to yield to her own particular connection to the Divine.

The show runs Sept. 9-18 at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Contact 731-SHOW or
