"A funny, pertinent and sharptoothed satire aimed at the materialist maladies of modern America." -The Guardian, London

Arthur Millerís penultimate play, Resurrection Blues, is a darkly comic satirical allegory that poses the question: What would happen if Christ were to appear in the world today? In an unidentified Latin American country, General Felix Barriaux has captured an elusive revolutionary leader. The rebel, known by various names, is rumored to have performed miracles throughout the countryside. The General plans to crucify the mysterious man, and the exclusive television rights to the twenty-four-hour reality-TV event have been sold to an American network for $25 million. An allegory that asserts the interconnectedness of our actions and each personís culpability in world events, Resurrection Blues is a comedic and tragic satire of precarious morals in our media-saturated age.
