THE ATHEIST

The Story: The Atheist

Augustine Early, a crooked journalist, has made an art of clawing his way up the professional ladder. When he turns a politician’s tawdry predilections into front-page news, the scandal threatens to undo the one person he thought was immune. A searing and hilarious play about the perfect headline, whatever the cost.

Review by Howard Loxton

“Despite its title, it is not a play about belief in God or lack of it, though Augustine does tell us he “lost his faith” quite early on. It is the story of a man who doesn’t let morals or scruples stand in the way of the opportunity to get what he wants.”
