Director Ora Dugar says the one-act play On Their Way to the Slabtown District Convention has its share of humor and sarcasm, but it's more than a comedy.
"It's a funny play. It's about a group of missionaries who attend their annual convention. But it's not a boring meeting because all along someone has something to say or will be doing something. It's entertaining," she said.
The play is being presented by The Augusta Chapter of Ministers' Wives and Ministers' Widows Interdenominational in recognition of their anniversary celebration. However, although the characters speak their minds, mumble and whisper behind one another's backs, there is a serious message for the audience.
"Even though the play is a comedy, when they walk away from the play, they should have the sense that we should be serious about God's work," Ms. Dugar said.
