Institute History

  • 1995 Playwrights Lab


Terri and Geordi are locked in a dying marriage, bound by a irresolvable tragedy in their past. One night in a pentacostal snake handling church service, Geordi is bitten and dies. On the third day he resurrects from the dead. Terri and Geordi struggle to make sense of what happened while everyone around them tries to bury it or buy it. “There are two kinds of tragedies in this world: unanswered prayers … and answered prayers.”


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
