About Family Healing
Family Healing; an inspirational play about forgiveness is about the Davis and Walker families are being torn apart on every side; sibling rivalry, adultery, gossip, property damage, unpaid loans and so much more. Consumed with anger, family members hang onto their grudges, dig their heels in and lace up their boxing gloves. The conflict escalates, and the big family reunion is on the verge of cancellation. However, the wisdom of an elderly aunt permeates the family and shows them that forgiveness can not only heal them but help them live God-centered and prosperous lives. While the overarching theme is an inspiration, the audience will laugh throughout as extreme viewpoints result in some extreme behavior maybe reminiscent of their own families.
