ACT OF GOD

A four-character, one-act play with a single set.

Synopsis: Martin, an unemployed actor – weak, shallow and feckless– inadvertently summons Satan who turns out to be sleazy and crude with terrible taste in clothes. Satan offers some trashy rewards for Martin's soul, which Martin rejects, holding out for a part in a Broadway play. Satan tells Martin that, under the rules, neither Satan nor Martin can leave the apartment until Satan gets Martin's or someone else's soul. They are thus locked in a small New York apartment and Satan turns out to be the houseguest from hell. Satan lusts after the soul of Martin's innocent girlfriend, Amy.   When that doesn't work at first, Satan tries several of Martin's friends. Each sees Satan differently– as a projection of his own vision of what is evil. When none of this works out, Martin calls in Father Damien, the last remaining practicing exorcist in the country. At the end, Martin and Amy discover Satan's only weakness.

Act of God was produced by the Contemporary Arts Theatre Company Washington, D.C. in March-April, 1991 with Paul Cunningham, Mitchell Hebert, Gail Frye and Jim Brady. Directed by Linda Lees.
