The PlayWith BABY SCREAMS MIRACLE, The Catastrophic Theatre introduces Houston audiences to one of the most exciting young playwrights in American theatre, Clare Barron. A catastrophic storm engulfs the home of a small, religious family. An estranged daughter blows in with the storm and between falling trees and flying trampolines, the family clings to prayer and forgiveness. Called “a genuinely fragile, complex piece of work,” (Time Out New York) BABY SCREAMS MIRACLE is a funny, moving tale of faith and survival.
