Winner of our 18th annual new play contest!
Noli Timere (Don’t Be Afraid) begins with a frantic knock at a rectory door at 3:00 a.m. It is answered by Father Thomas, who’s fallen asleep reading Scripture in an armchair beneath a soaring pointed arch supported by richly moulded ribs. In rushes a man in a pressed cocoa-colored business suit, tie akimbo, hair slightly dishevelled. After a period of awkward stammering, he finally blurts out that he needs to see the monsignor because he’s possessed and in need of exorcism.
Thus begins a Gothic tale in which an event from Father Thomas’ past threatens his descent into spiritual disintegration if not eternal damnation. More >
