God Fights the Plague: Real-Life Stories of Religion -- An Atheist, a Witch, a Drag Queen Rabbi & More
- Full Price:
- Our Price:
For Dezi Gallegos' latest piece of documentary theater, the 18-year-old performance prodigy interviewed people from nine different religions to help him decide once and for all whether or not God exists. What he found -- and shares on stage -- is wit and wisdom from a witch who worships Elvis, the director of an official organization of American atheists, a rabbi who somehow holds down a side job as a drag queen and many more, as well as an understanding of the shared human quest to discover why we're here. Gallegos has continued to develop his craft since his success as the co-writer of the award-winning Prop 8 Love Stories, when he was just 14. Learn More

Entertaining. Engaging. I was impressed with Sigal nailing gestures and style of her character (a caricature of a personal growth guru). Tightly written and delivered. Great use of music and song to balance the words. There was an enjoyable rhythm and cadence to the piece's phrasing and structure. Sort of subtley, amidst the laughs and entertainment, Sigal drives home how we seek happiness outside though it's inside. We can see how out-of-hand personal transformation has gotten to where it has become big business and a commodity.
