THE BOOK OF MAGGIE - Hey God! - Maggie

Houston, Texas

PLAY DESCRIPTION

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.
