World Premier: The Road to Damascus

Professor Tom Dulack’s new play, “The Road to Damascus,” premiered this month at the off-Broadway theater 59E59.  The play, directed by Michael Parva of The Directors Company in NY, runs for six weeks through March 1. It is set in the near future and is about big issues, including Islam vs. Roman Catholicism and the U.S. policy of endless war in the Middle East. The protagonist, the first black African pope, is determined to thwart a projected U.S. invasion of Syria.  Dulack notes, “We have a terrific cast, and a very fine director in .” This sixth of Dulack’s plays to be produced in New York was favorably reviewed in the NY Times.
