"God's Issue"

Written and directed by David Green '19E for his senior honors project. Set design by Sophina Flores '20, costume design by Lorelei Dietz '20, lighting design by Kathy Couch, sound design by Christianna Mariano '21 and music direction by Eli Quastler '21.

What ever became of Eve and Adam? God’s Issue follows the relationship between God and her first children from the Garden of Eden to the Gospel stories. The play seeks to undermine conventions of western Christianity by telling a story inclusive of marginalized identities. From original musical numbers, to humor, to the apocryphal character of Adam’s first wife, Lilith, God’s Issue preserves the heart of sacred stories in thought-provoking retellings.

Free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended-- call (413) 542-2277.
