Berkeley Rep Talk: The Good Book
A docent from Berkeley Rep comes to talk about their current production, The Good Book. This Powerful Play weaves together three distinct yet connected stores: a devout young man struggling to reconcile his belief with his identity; an atheist biblical scholar trying to find meaning as she faces her own mortality; and the creative journey of the Bible itself-from ancient Mesopotamia to medieval Ireland to suburban America-through the many hands, minds, hearts and circumstances that molded this incredibly potent testament to the human spirit.
