Description
The time is '200 years after the Rain of 1969' and the action is a paraphrase of the Bible, commencing with the ark and the flood and ending with the sacrifice of the god-figure. A vital youth and a girl are introduced to the rituals of the community led by Arthur, who believes himself divine. Another man becomes his priest and establishes a ritual - ablutions, confession, audiences, sacrifices, etc. But Arthur is disabused of his godly notions and convinced that he was only possessed by God and was only his vicar. It is he who must be sacrificed. Contained in the volume Bowen Plays One.
