In this Victorian primer gone berserk, Papa is a Christian censor. Mama has taken Annabel and Harry to the park to read them edifying passages from the Bible. The Old Testament story of lust, incest and murder she stumbles on is not what Mama had in mind, but it holds them all spellbound. This play will infuriate people like Papa, but its madness and witty irreverence reveals the unexpected beauty buried in a complex book that hypocrites who would control what we read are too blind to see. This unusual play would make an excellent pairing with God's Spies.
