“Miracle on South Division Street” finds the Nowak family, amidst the urban rubble of Buffalo’s
East Side, performing their unique Christmas ritual of gathering at the shabby old homestead to
commemorate the family “miracle”. According to legend, on Christmas Eve in 1942, the Blessed
Mother herself appeared to Grandpa in the family barbershop. Now Clara, the family matriarch,
happily tends the family heirloom, a twenty-foot memorial shrine to the Virgin Mary which
adjoins the house. As the play develops, daughter Ruth divulges her plan to finally “go public”
with the miracle by creating a one-woman Christmas Show about the sacred event. But during
the meeting, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the very core when a deathbed confession
causes the family legend to unravel. The results are heartfelt and hilarious!
