SYNOPSIS: A prophet speaks, people listen...but when the prophet leaves, his followers are unsure about his message, and when they try to interpret it, there's more than a little disagreement—there's an outright battle. As each rival group claims to be the only ones who understand them, we watch the prophet's words become twisted and deformed beyond recognition. A dramatic comment on belief and morality.

"A rare find - a solidly written, darkly comic, large cast, ultra-short play. No special costumes, open staging make this breeze to produce. We really enjoyed the discussions that arose regarding the plot. Great for those students who are hungry to experiment with political theater."
