Oracles and Miracles, by Norelle Scott, based on the best-selling novel Oracles and Miracles by Stevan Eldred-Grigg, follows the journey of two working-class sisters growing up in Christchurch, New Zealand. Born in 1929 they are children of the Depression. They grow to adulthood through the time of the Second World War, and become mothers in the Baby Boom of the early fifties. Nick-named Ginnie and Fag the sisters are driven by the hope of a better life, consumed with love stories, romantic ideals, and luxuries they can only dream of. Told with humour, passion, insight, and authenticity, ‘Oracles and Miracles' celebrates the lives of courageous women.

This production marks the 30 year Anniversary of Stevan Eldred-Grigg's powerful novel and the North American debut of Norelle Scott's play directed by Leah Patterson winner of the Best Director Award at the Hollywood Short+Sweet Festival 2017.

"his barebones Fringe production is a mixed bag: directed by Leah Patterson, it features several strong and/or capable performances, and a weaker portrayal that unfortunately undermines the show."

"It’s a story that’s been told many times, this time with a Kiwi accent and attitude. Leah Patterson’s direction keeps the action flowing smoothly and she elicits fine performances from her cast."
