The Passion of Meredith
by Lizz Bogaard & Gabby Gillespie
There was only one cultural artifact that survived the 2023 Apocalypse: seasons 1 through 19 of Grey’s Anatomy. Taking place 4000 years later, “The Passion of Meredith” follows a community theater’s rehearsal for what has become the ancient tragedy Grey’s Anatomy – a play about the life of mythic healer Saint Meredith Grey, set to premiere at this year’s annual Festival of Meredith. And the pressure’s on, as it will be the stage debut of the long-awaited first daughter of Grey, Meredith II. All is going according to the Church’s plan, until – just 24 hours before opening night – Saint Meredith herself comes to Meredith II, compelling her to expose the injustices of her oppressive religious state.
