Title: Job
Author: Bradshaw, Thomas
Price: $23.95

"[A] short, sharp and vigorously comic tragedy." - The New York Times

Meet Job, the wise and powerful judge of an ancient Israelite tribe. Satan bets God that he can make Job blaspheme God through ever-escalating violence and loss. Will Job question God's promise to reward the righteous, even when his prayers for mercy go unanswered?

In this dark, twisted comedy, Thomas Bradshaw brings us an honest, uncynical adaptation of the book of Job. "Both entertaining and repulsive, Job is simultaneously a faithful retelling of the titular biblical tale and a raucous spoof of it … Part of what I love so much about Bradshaw's plays is that he forces his audience to look at our lives, the mundane and the profound, with newly jaded eyes."
