Susan and God is a dramatic comedy that follows Susan, a magnetic socialite, just returned from a trip abroad and on a quest to evangelize her high society friends. Her new religious fervor is mostly scoffed at until her friends start taking her claims personally. Meanwhile, her estranged husband Barrie and daughter Blossom cannot help but hope that Susan's new take on life might just be their ticket back into hers. The play was written in the 1930's by Rachel Crothers, an often overlooked American playwright and theatre director of the early 20th century.
