The play begins in the Nite Life bar, where one of the denizens recounts the tale of the Reverend Booker T. Brown, a good-hearted preacher of middle years who finds himself smitten by the charms of a nubile young parishioner. His temptation is put to the test when Big Red (better know as the devil) offers him a proposition: all the money he can spend plus the favors of his desired, in exchange for which the Reverend must sign away his soul. He agrees�but then recants�which leads to the central action of the piece, an hilarious play-within-a-play in which all the actors appear in double roles as good and evil clash with the Reverend's immortal soul hanging in the balance. It is touch and go for a while, yet all works out happily in the end�but not before a joyous good time is had by audiences and actors alike.
