J.B. is a modern retelling of the story of the biblical figure Job, written in free verse. The play opens in a "corner inside an enormous circus tent." Two vendors, Mr. Zuss and Nickles, begin the play-within-a-play by assuming the roles of God and Satan, respectively. They overhear J.B., a wealthy New York banker, describe his prosperity as a just reward for his faithfulness to God. Scorning him, Nickles wagers that J.B. will curse God once his life is ruined. . . .
Open auditions at Crestview Baptist Church, Georgetown, on Friday, September 8, 2017, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
