Description

Maria, a community worker, looks after an unruly gang of mentally disabled people. She wants to put on a community show but lacks both a venue and a community to perform it. Ray's workshop, actually a deconsecrated church, could be the answer to her prayers. Ray, however, wields an unnatural influence over people. Can he be trusted? On the other hand, Dezzie, her colleague, is a great guy; he's tall, handsome, and he doesn't mind women with concave chests. After an alarming incident with a flasher and auditions that include the Can-Can Grans, Maria succeeds in setting up a Musical Extravaganza. However, in doing so she suffers a moral dilemma that would curl a bishop's hair. If Maria does 'the right thing' she'll wreck careers, break hearts and end up alone and flat-chested. What is 'the right thing' and should she do it? "Only Strange People Go to Church Nowadays" is a lighthearted look at modern secular society and our need for community. It is also an exploration of love and sex with the wrong people.show more
