Overview

Dramatic comedy

Cahracters: 3 male, 2 female

A hip and inventive new play by Walter Mosley,
best-selling author of more than 25 books and most widely known for his popular Easy Rawlins mysteries, including "Devil in a Blue Dress".
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.

The Fall of Heaven, is a stunning success. Mosley deftly reworks "The Tempest Tales" into an incendiary piece of theatre that's both enthralling and engaging, drawing in the audience and never letting them go." -Broadwayworld.com

"The Fall of Heaven is one hell of a show" -TheVitalVoice.com

"The Fall of Heaven is an auspicious stage debut that will entertain audiences [and] could mark the rise of Walter Mosley as a powerful contemporary voice on the American stage." -City Beat

"Engaging, fantastical morality play...take a well-worn theme - deceased returns to Earth with angelic guidance - and add the inimitable voice of Walter Mosley, best known for his series of Easy Rawlins suspense novels, and a nearly cliché mise-en-scène becomes a rich playground for examination of moral greys, along with a healthy dose of American racial politics." -St. Louis Magazine
