Holy Ground

Damien Geter


Performance forces:



Three archangels walk into a bar and drown their sorrows. The Messiah is late and the 490th Virgin has turned down the opportunity to birth him. Can a rookie angel persuade a modern girl to take on the task, staving off the apocalypse? And what’s the problem with motherhood in a Pharasitic dystopia anyway? Parked at the intersection of satirical fantasy and divine comedy, Holy Ground reminds us that someone had to choose to save the world. (A refocusing of the Annunciation story on a young woman’s choice. ) Commissioned by The Glimmerglass Festival
