THE BOOK OF MAGGIE - Heaven - Joan

Houston, Texas


THE BOOK OF MAGGIE  is a dark comedy in which Judas Iscariot, and Pontius Pilate, whiling away their days in the afterlife, are tasked by St. Peter with a chance at redemption. Judas is charged with the task of saving a suicidal young woman named Maggie. Pilate is asked to take a mysterious woman named Joan on a near-death experience through hell. Things don't go smoothly for anyone, and as the plot unfurls, it becomes clear that there's some grander scheme in the works that goes beyond what any of these characters signed on for.


Time: Timeless Present  

Situation:  Joan (who is actually Jonah) makes Pontius Pilate question whether the place where he's spent the last 2000 years really is what he thinks it is.

Subject Matter: God, Christianity, Religion, Bible, Jonah, Perspective, Philosophy, Heaven, Hell

Supplemental Information:  The full script of THE BOOK OF MAGGIE  is available to read on

THE BOOK OF MAGGIE  was produced by Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston, Texas and Death and Pretzels Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois.
