The Good Book
About The Good Book
Denis O’Hare and Lisa Peterson apply their formidable creative energy to unearth the all-too-human formation of the most influential book in Western history—the Bible.
This powerful play weaves together three distinct yet connected stories: a devout young man struggling to reconcile his belief with his identity; an atheist biblical scholar trying to find meaning as she faces her own mortality; and the creative journey of the Bible itself—from ancient Mesopotamia to medieval Ireland to suburban America—through the many hands, minds, hearts, and circumstances that molded this incredibly potent testament to the human spirit.
Recommended for ages 14 and up.
