  §  Dramatis Personae Nina (f), an actress; Promoter (m),  Nina’s employee; Angel (f), Nina’s spiritual gadfly.

  §  Synopsis “Nina is at the theatre warming up before a performance, and her Promoter is there to take  photos of her. An Angel appears to Nina as she is trying to deal with the conflicting value systems of the Promoter, and it is the Angel which prompts Nina to speak of her value system . . . and how difficult it  has been for her to try to be a spiritual being in a materialistic world.

  §  Comment “There are nine scenes, punctuated by  poetry and music, which offers a non-literal commentary on the action and ideas as they unfold. Special lighting effects for the music/poetry  punctuations which take us out of the real into a more symbolic environment. A good sound system for the prerecorded music (electronic) and poetry. Premiered in May, 1995, in the Thorneloe Chapel, Sudbury, with five performances.”

  §  Themes angel, multimedia, postmodernity, religion, spirituality, theatre.
