Based on the Biblical tale of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, with echoes of the Holocaust, Lot and his family desperately try to find ten devout souls to prevent the destruction of their home. Along the way they discover that the power of faith can have dire consequences, and that survival can exact its own disastrous repercussions. Leavened with humor and humanity, Lot’s Wife is a unique channeling off a troubled family, that is both timeless and topical.

The talented ensemble of WCT actors includes: Michelle Daneshvar, Justina Dieck, Jason Fineberg, Julie Griffin, Donna James, Jessica Hickey, Kurt Lauer, Pat O’Neill, Ron Schnittker and Ralph Vandamme.
