“Deliciously dark social satire” –Theatre Guide London
In Loreto there is a Holy House, a divine and wondrously flitting house. A vessel for the holy. But now it’s in Sam’s house. And Sam can’t figure it out. But Sam knows he must. It’s not every day a miracle happens and your house becomes the vessel that contains the vessel that contained Mary and Mary is the vessel that contained our Lord. This symbol of faith and transformation comes crashing into a contemporary city as Sam races through 24 hours dealing with trapped parents, girlfriends and dentists to find meaning in this darkly comic odyssey.
