An 1830’s Shaker community is changed when a non-believer has an ecstatic experience. The arrival of a newcomer upsets the harmony and routine, reigniting their once dramatic form of worship and threatening the power of the older believers. But only the ones who question the existence of angels need visual proof. Hymns sung a cappella punctuate the scenes of the play, which ends with a joyful explosion of Shaker singing and ecstatic dance.
