Category:  Drama

How much crap can we take and manage to hold on? When our protectors stop protecting, where do we turn?

Masterfully updating the biblical story of Job for modern audiences, Archibald MacLeish tilts at the windmill of The Big Questions: Why do good people suffer? How do we face pain? In an empty circus tent, a balloon salesman and a popcorn vendor bring the story to life, hitting comedic highs and tragic lows in an epic style rarely attempted by American playwrights. This Pulitzer-Prize winning play is a great play for any time but is especially relevant in New Orleans today.
