Babel Belly

A play in 2 acts (3 women, 3 men)

As the son of a pastor, faith always came easy to Cory. But now he's fifteen and filled with hormones, doubt, and a crippling fear of death.

With his father under scrutiny from the church council and his mother bouncing between eastern religions in search of something more satisfying, the only guidance available is from his atheist girlfriend and the church's devout senior pastor, providing no help from either side.

Determined to trade faith for certainty, Cory sets out to find proof of the Almighty, building a message he hopes God cannot ignore.
