“As it is in Heaven”
Written by Arlene Hutton
Directed by Daniel Inouye
A Shaker community in Pleasant Hill, Kentucky in the 1830s is, well, shaken after newcomer Fanny joins and some of its young female members begin to see visions and claim spiritual gifts. These “gifts” cause the young girls to dance and twirl, see angels, shout out, and fall into awed trances, completely upending the community. The elder members see these experiences as mere flights of fancy, excuses not to do chores, and a disruption of orderly worship. They question Fanny’s intentions and honesty, and the community must decide if this is a true spiritual resurgence,or something manufactured by Fanny and the other girls.
