Amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, John Smith sees the face of God

His modern-day revelation creates a maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows

A newcomer to faith, John urgently searches for a modern response to the age-old question - at what cost salvation?

"Unsettles exactly as it shouldA nifty coup de théâtre that demands that you rethink everything you've seen up to that point" ~ NY Times

"A darkly comic morality tale" ~ NY Post

"Neil LaBute has done something quite different in this new play: He's created what basically amounts to a Rorschach test of faith" ~ Associated Press
