Luke’s a man on a mission. He’s a tech billionaire; a Silicon Valley superstar who’s made his money in Artificial intelligence and Rocket technology.
And now, God is talking to him.
His mission is to stop all conflict and violence; all he has to do is change the world.
Christopher Shinn's gripping play received its world premiere at the Almeida Theatre on 12 August 2017 in a production directed by Ian Rickson and featuring RADA graduate Ben Whishaw as Luke.
Produced by special arrangement with, and all authorised performance materials supplied by, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, Llc.
