A new set at a time when emotional and psychological control have become the governing weapons in society and conformism is the new politics. This absorbing and challenging one hour play takes place in the dark place where personalities are stripped bare, cleansed and sent back out into the world…changed…changed utterly. A terrible beauty is born

The year is 2009. Strange and miraculous things are happening throughout the world. Raptures are taking place on a daily basis in the United States. The holy temple in Jerusalem is beginning to crumble, as predicted in the book of revelations. And then of course there’s the miracle boy from Honduras, curing people of all known maladies. Most Irish people are skeptical of it all, dismissing it as foreign madness. So when a face resembling that of Jesus Christ’s appears on the edifice of a house in Harolds Cross one Sunday morning, it forces them to think again. Fully aware that rain from the night before deposited sand all over the city (much to the disgust of drivers) the residents of Harolds Cross still have great difficulty in accepting the possibility that the face is nothing more then a fluke of nature. And who could blame them. It looks exactly like the face of Jesus. One other thing! It’s not going anywhere.
