Most alleged sightings of biblical figures entail some form of the Virgin Mary, whether shes visible in the light shining through a tangle of tree branches or in a grilled cheese sandwich. But such sightings are usually reported by lay people, not members of the clergy. If a priest were to claim to have had a sighting, chances are it would be that of a saint. Local playwright Michael McKeever had that in mind when he penned his latest production, Hand of God. Set in an unassuming suburb just outside Philadelphia, Hand of God follows a Monsignor and a priest as they try to make sense of the Monsignors apparent visitation. Was it the hand of God he saw, or was it more like the fingernail of hallucination?
