The Spring Hill High School Theatre Presents Ville Du Havre a Play in one act by Amanda Guthrie March 22 and 23rd at 7 pm at L. L. Williamson Auditorium 1301 Spring Hill Rd, Longview, Texas Admission $3
Ville du Havre is based on the true events that inspired the hymn, "It is Well". The story interweaves the lives of Horatio Spafford, the man who wrote the lyrics, and Philip Bliss, the man who wrote the melody. After facing several tragic events Spafford is inspired to write the famous words as he passes over the spot where the shipwreck occurred. Throughout the play, the events that lead up to the writing occur, as Bliss struggles to find the melody and faces his own tragedy. However, the overall message is one of hope, as both men are able to arrive at peace in their own lives and the hymn comes to completion. This play is approximately 45 min.
