“Fasten your seatbelts. ‘Prophet,’ Thomas Bradshaw’s lacerating satire, has begun.”-The New York Times
Emerging playwright and provocateur Thomas Bradshaw (Strom Thurmond Is Not a Racist) has had his work produced at venues such as Walkerspace, Richard Foreman’s Ontological Theatre and Bard College. In his new work Prophet, Bradshaw continues to provoke and intrigue. A man wakes up one morning and decides he must kill himself. He is angry with himself for not hitting his wife every time she has an independent thought (as Abraham and Moses would have done). After she dies and God reveals to him that he is the new Prophet, the man takes a new wife, dresses her in slave chains, and begins to preach his newfound gospel of male domination. Simultaneously humorous and disturbing, Bradshaw’s Prophet explores controversial issues in startling and unexpected ways.
