Regional Premiere of HANDLER opens January 29

In the rural South, present day, Geordi has just been released from prison. He and his wife, Terri, a member of the Holiness Way Church, struggle to re-build their marriage after several years of separation and the death of their daughter. One night in service, as rousing singing, dancing and praying takes the congregation into ecstatic celebration, Geordi handles snakes for the first time and is dealt a deadly bite. Three days later, before the astonished eyes of the congregation, Geordi resurrects! What happened to Geordi on the other side? Who gets saved? Who gets forgiven? A haunting story of love, fear and faith.

Presented by DragonFly Arts, this is the Regional Premier for “Handler,” written by American playwright and screenwriter Robert Schenkkan. Directed by Jeremy Williams.
