Alice Visits a Mosque to Learn About Judgment Day
A play about what to expect
Paperback, 79 pages
The dialogue is made up, but the revelations are real as are the authenticated sayings of the Prophet Muhammad.
The character of Alice only bears a remote resemblance to the heroine of Lewis Carroll's tale of a young girl "who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures."
The phantasmagorical universe that the imam describes to Alice is not a fantasy, it is a tangible world brought to life through Allah's Revelations about that most ominous of days that will be Judgement Day.
Alice visits a Mosque to learn about Judgment Day is a short, thought-provoking, often brutal play/script (it could not be otherwise) about a central theme of Islamic theology on which the Koran expounds at length.
Alice is not meant to offend but to enlighten. It is both a play and an invitation to learn more about Islam's core religious text. We hope you will read it (or see it if it makes it to the stage or the screen) in the spirit it was written.
Let Alice pique your curiosity about a book which will continue to have an increasingly profound impact on your way of life, if not your right to life itself.
Inquiries from producers and impresarios welcomed.
