THE FALL OF HEAVEN

3 men / 2 women

Tempest Landry, a street-wise young man living in Harlem, unexpectedly finds himself at the Pearly Gates.  When Saint Peter orders him to hell, the quick-witted Tempest refuses to go.  A technical loophole forces heaven to send Tempest back to Earth with an angel in tow to keep him out of trouble. The resulting battle of wills explores cosmic questions of justice and redemption, good versus evil, and who gets to decide.

 

 “ … an incendiary piece of theatre that’s both enthralling and engaging, drawing in the audience and never letting them go.”   

- Broadway World

… you’ve got one of those nights at the theater you just hope is someone’s first live play, ’cause they’ll be fans for a lifetime.  It’s that kind of special.

- St. Louis Magazine

’The Fall of Heaven’ could mark the rise of Walter Mosley as a powerful contemporary voice  on the American Stage.

- City Beat (Cincinnati)

“Not only is it a new play, fresh from the prolific imagination of novelist Walter Mosley, it also is a play so far outside the usual dramatic conventions that it keeps you guessing until the very last moments.”   

St. Louis Post Dispatch

 “Mosley … possesses a hiply modern ear, a sharply focused, streetwise eye, tremendous wit, and a mischievous mix of unmitigated comic glee and deep ruefulness about the human condition.”   

Chicago Sun Times
