Rapture $20.90 ex GST
$22.99 inc GST
A vivid, timely new play that shines a revealing light on Australia’s unsettled soul. The play is set among intelligent and educated people whose cynicism appears to answer all questions and who navigate uncertainty with ease. What could possibly shock or unsettle them? The answer is: faith. When two of their number claim to have found God, the consequences are profound. Ethics and certainties are tested on a battleground of inexplicable belief. Long-term friendships are pushed to the limit as the faithless wrestle with the affront of moral judgement.

Cast : 3M, 3F
