The Magnificent Story of St. Marlene’s Marvelous Moonshine (Made by Monks) at the 2011 Minnesota Fringe Festival
Christy Marie Kent

Christy’s “unconventional reverence” is something I wish we had more of in institutional religion. She is especially good at humor that depends on a reversal of expectations. Having lived in Tennessee for six years myself, I know how intensely where you are born figures into who you are. I was told then that our children would always be Yankees, even if I gave birth while we were living there.  “If the cat had kittens in the oven, we would not call them biscuits, would we?”  If anything detracted (just a titch) from my enjoyment of these stories, it is that I have so rarely had the privilege of meeting such tolerant and interesting folk, in the church or in the South. Perhaps we can create them at Fringe Festivals. I think there’s a market.
