Disillusioned preacher C.C. Showers takes work on a farm in a fictional Depression-era Indiana town called Zion. Here, he befriends an intellectually disabled teenage boy, Buddy, who is terrified of water, yet has an extraordinary gift: he can divine underground aquifers. When the community discovers that Showers is an ex-preacher, they believe that he was sent to their community as a sign from God. This sets in motion events that lead to irreversible consequences for Buddy and Showers. A story about love, companionship, and salvation, The Diviners is a touching and endearing play.
