In its first half Bekah Brunstetter's sort-of-comedy actually feels like a sweetly
twisted send up of the [Hugh] Grant-model romcom. But there's more to 'Miss Lilly...'
than that. ... A witty, likeably bonkers little play!
- Time Out London

Miss Lilly, a Sunday school teacher, has been waiting patiently for God to drop a man in her lap. When a new student – a young South African boy whose mother was killed by an elephant – disturbs the harmony of her classroom and his father disturbs the harmony of her heart, Miss Lilly is forced to re-examine her own sense of faith and self. Right or wrong, sinful or holy – a natural force is at work in Miss Lilly’s classroom where her hymns are accompanied by the rumble of angry elephants and her prayers are answered by a stranger to her god.
