2022 EAG Open Stage Grant
Strictly Limited Showcase
Between the aggressive teenage prophet in the cafeteria, the Catholic nun obsessed with a carrot patch, and the wacky grandma who won't stay dead, Vanessa Rosales has a lot to deal with. Being the lone rational atheist at Saint Angela's School for Girls doesn't make matters easier. When the aforementioned prophet declares that Vanessa will be the next Virgin Mary, Vanessa considers the whole thing an elaborate form of bullying. Now, if only the impossible would stop happening..
Zennie Trieu of The 730 Review calls The Inconvenient Miracle "unmissable" and " " fabulously fantastical!" Get your tickets now!
STATEMENT ON DOBBS
The Inconvenient Miracle is the story of one teenage girl's personal choice when faced with an impossible circumstance. It is a celebration of her individual personhood, an affirmation of the dignity of women, and a call for mutual love and support. In light of the recent Dobbs decision, we believe this message is more vital than ever.

The Episcopal Actors’ Guild (EAG)/Guild Hall is located at 1 EAST 29th STREET, NYC 10016 (midblock between Madison and Fifth, between #3 and #9 East 29th Street) on the second floor of the Church of the Transfiguration (aka the Little Church Around the Corner). We are NOT the big church on the corner of Fifth Avenue; that's Marble Collegiate. When you arrive at the Little Church, enter through the main gate and go through the garden to the door marked Guild Hall (between the main doors into the church and the door to the parish office).
Getting Here: The closest subways are the R/W or 6 at 28th Street or the B/D/F/M or N/Q/R/W at 34th Street/Herald Square. If you are arriving by bus, take the M1, M2, M3, M5, M6, or M7.
Lobby: Guild Hall does NOT have a lobby or waiting area. You are welcome to enjoy the Little Church’s garden (weather permitting) if you arrive early.
Box Office: The box office opens at 6PM and the house will open at 6:40. Because of the nature of this facility, there will be no late seating.
Restrooms: There is only one restroom for the entire facility.
Accessibility: Stair chair available (no elevator)
