About the Show Less...

A wild exploration of love, courage, family, sex and religion. Read More >

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 hyms are accompanied by the rumble of angry elephants and her prayers are answered by a stranger to her god.

Miss Lilly Gets Boned is a wild exploration of love, courage, family, sex and religion from American playwright Bekah Brunstetter, playwright in residence at the Finborough theatre.
