THE MOTHER OF GOD VISITS HELL - Give My Wish A Second Chance - Mary

Author Daniel Guyton
Fayetteville, GA

PLAY DESCRIPTION

Based on a poem described in The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky; and written in rhyming Iambic Pentameter. The Virgin Mary travels to hell to comfort the souls in torment. While there, she condemns her own soul to save those of all mankind - much to God's dismay. What erupts is a war between Heaven and Hell, with all of our souls in the balance.
