Set in the socially and economically oppressed South during the Great Depression of the 1930s, "Faith, Hope and Charity" is the story of a young woman’s struggle to survive as a victim of forces she does not quite comprehend, where irrational actions far outweigh common sense, and where personal struggles are only relevant to the ones suffering.

That's the description on PURE Theatre's Web site, but we wanted to know more. Geoff Marshall dropped by and checked it out. So watch the video above and then keep reading for how to see it.
