The Fall of Heaven
A play by Walter Mosley, based on his novel The Tempest Tales opens in January 7, 2011 at the Repertory Theatre in St. Louis, MO. The play will run through January 30.
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 takes an intriguing look at good versus evil and what it means to be human.
