"HENPECKED"

- The Modern Day Love Story of Hosea & Gomer Inspirational Stage Play -

HENPECKED


Moving4Word Productions Erie, PA



Henpecked: The Modern Day Love Story of Hosea & Gomer is an inspirational play based on a classic biblical tale filled with love, scandal and faith! Pastor Michael Ford is a good man trying to do everything he can to lead a strong flock, but how can he tend his flock when he can’t even lead his family?

His wife Sharon is a very reluctant first lady who’s got an explosive secret past. She’s got one foot in the church and one foot on the streets. Will her desire to go back to her old life bring ruin to her entire family? While Pastor Michael Ford struggles with forgiving his cheating wife, his congregation throws shade at him night and day labeling him "Henpecked"

In an exciting stage play written by Tracie Bonnick, (writer, producer and director of "The Bad Girls of The Bible" Inspirational Stage Play) the retelling of the biblical story Hosea and Gomer is brought to life with an exciting and new flare! The 2nd production in a series of plays that bring Bible stories to life, "Henpecked" is a bold, hilarious, and engaging take on a timeless tale!
