Knead (Hertz Stage, Alliance Theatre)
Sunday, December 9 | 2:30 pm
Join us for the world premiere of Knead, written and performed by our own Mary Lynn Owen. “In the wee hours a woman bakes bread. . . . The ingredients of time and memory keep interfering and the process becomes a journey into the unpredictability of just about everything.” Purchase your ticket at alliancetheatre.org or 404-733-5000. Sojourner reservation requested by Sunday, December 2. Coordinator: Donna Church.

Christopher’s is just a 5-minute drive to St. Luke’s and offers a wide variety of familiar food with flair as well as seasonal specials. Good food and fellowship—worth getting up early for!
