Mask and Bauble Dramatic Society
Season 168

By Archibald MacLeish
Directed by Matt Phillips (COL ’22)
Produced by Emma Hough (COL ’20)

J.B. and Sarah are the proud, grateful, prosperous parents of five charming children, none of whom have ever wanted for anything. Yet when they find their wealth, family and entire lives subsumed in a wager of heavenly proportions, they are forced to reckon with unspeakable loss and seemingly insurmountable tragedy. This modern retelling relocates the biblical myth of Job into an American nuclear household, as J.B. and Sarah confront their God, their collapsing marriage, and the awful burden of starting over. A tremendously hopeful, poetic musing on the all-conquering power of love – and the things worth rebuilding for – Archibald MacLeish’s play thrusts ancient questions of the human condition into the modern era.
