Broadway Producer Pick List: Modern Prophet


Against the backdrop of the oil fracking boom, an energy scavenger and his sister arrive at the river headwaters just east of Jordan. They soon learn they are not alone. A strange man roams the woods at night. He claims he carries the power of God. Modern Prophet, by Sam Graber, explores the nature of belief and steps into the environmental crossroads where God’s will ends and human divinity begins.
