A man wakes up one morning and decides he must kill himself. He is angry with himself for not hitting his wife every time she has an independent thought (as Abraham and Moses would have done). After she dies and God reveals to him that he is the new Prophet, the man takes a new wife, dresses her in slave chains, and begins to preach his newfound gospel of male domination. Simultaneously humorous and disturbing, Bradshaw's Prophet
explores controversial issues in startling and unexpected ways.
This play contains scenes of a graphic sexual and violent nature that may not be suitable for all audiences.
"Fasten your seatbelts. PROPHET, Thomas Bradshaw's lacerating satire,...hurtles from rambunctious mockery to real horror. This is situation satire with a vengeance..." - The New York Times
