OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL DONUTS

by Jordan Beswick

Addressing a group of incarcerated teenage female offenders, Edna, the donut lady of Hayward, CA, shares her story of survival. How, through stubbornness, creativity, a capacity for love, and God’s peculiar care, she escaped her would-be destroyers and found salvation in, of all things, donuts. Her home and donut shop have provided abused and neglected youth safe haven for years. After listening to her speak, one of the young inmates was overheard saying, “I feel like I just spent an hour listening to the sun talk about darkness.”

Excellent and Moving

Edna is a survivor of more than one kind of abuse, and her amazing story of resilience and finding her own way will survive in your memory for a very long time. This is simply one excellent and moving extended monologue/one-woman play. Read this one. You’ll be better for it.
