Abstract:

"Reaching into the darkness of American life at its extremes from the lives of the wealthy and fortunate to the struggles of the invisible and neglected this play follows three protagonists who share a dream. An African American teenager fights to overcome his family's cycle of despair and drug dependency, a thirty five year old white advertising executive with a new baby suffers from a deep sense of her own spiritual worthlessness, and a forty five year old documentary film maker, also white, is losing her African American lover to breast cancer. Using newspaper headlines, cyber chat rooms, online data bases and a dream like array of startling, sometimes beautiful often terrible images carved from the nightmares of these disparate souls, God's Heart seeks compassion for those who cry out for connection, peace and kindness in the face of the unspeakable cruelty and exploitation that erode the heart of American culture."--Publisher description.
