The Second Coming

A work that hones in on the Creation versus Darwin debate. It is set in a Pentecostal chapel outside Chattanooga, whose charismatic preacher Lazarus Everyman presides over a congregation of black, red and white ‘trash’. This ‘sect’ has elements of the Quakers and the Amish. The play follows a full revivalist meeting, including faith healing and a snake dance, a lecture by a visiting theologian on Creation and Darwin, and at the end, a surprise appearance by Jesus Christ. Naturally there are lots of Gospel songs.
