Say Hallelujah is a comedy set around the day to day exploits of a long suffering West Indian shopkeeper D’Coursey and his zany family. D’Coursey’s daughter aspires to be a famous actress, while his son plots a street revolution. His wife is forming a close bond with a clergyman, and her newfound religious duties involve moving her husband’s shop stock to the vestry. All the while their lodger, a lawyer in training, makes every family matter a great deal more complicated with their philosophies. One day, when a prayer meeting turned argument in the living room seemingly sends a pregnant customer into labour, decisions have to be made as to the family’s future.
