A JEW A MUSLIM A CHRISTIAN AND AN ATHEIST STUCK IN A ROOM!
“Have you ever wondered what life’s all about? Stick four people in a room, and let them sort it out!”. This musical is based on years of research into the history of the world’s three major monotheisms and their relationship with Atheism. Jews, Muslims, and Christians have a history that is intertwined and with far more in common than we would think given the usual front page news. The hope for this show is to entertain, and look at the common ground of these religions and atheism, what pulls us apart, and what might help bring us together.
*This show was shortlisted for the 2018 Stage West Best new musical in Development award through the Playwrights Guild of Canada Tom Hendry Awards. Here’s what the Jury had to say:
“I love that the meta set up has a contemporary feel and it has a broad appeal. The dialogue was funny and it was clever. I enjoyed this! I had fun with it and had laughs at parts that surprised me! I was not insulted, which I expected to be! The concept is topical and is not a typical form. I could easily see this produced as it has a lot of potential.”
One act musical comedy (approx. 75 minutes) (2 F, 2 M)

I’ve always been fascinated by world religions and their commonalities, and in some ways, this show is less a “musical” then a musicalized version of theology 101.
