The God Box: A Daughter’s Story

Tuesday, April 28 | 8 pm

Written and Performed by
Mary Lou Quinlan

Co-Written and Directed by
Martha Wollner


“A stirring and moving creation…comic, tragic and endearing…a truly beautiful play with a heart full of love behind it.” – British Theatre Guide


“Heartfelt, and engaging. Quinlan’s character is vulnerable and basely human…an impressive production.” – Broadway Baby

See the performance that sold-out Off-Broadway and won rave reviews at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014!

An overachieving daughter, devastated after the sudden loss of her mother, makes a startling discovery: private boxes of notes to God written by the very hand that has slipped away. These secret petitions, scribbled on torn pages and Post-its, lure her onto an emotional rollercoaster, ricocheting from grief to laughter to the greatest human challenge: learning to let go. Based on her New York Times bestseller, The God Box, charismatic author and storyteller Mary Lou Quinlan shares her most personal journey yet. The solo show will make you laugh, cry and want to call your mother.

The God Box Project has been giving back to communities across the US, raising over $250,000 for cancer and hospice care, education and community causes over the past two years. This performance will benefit the Irish Hospice Foundation.
