JOB, 2012


Meet Job, the wise and powerful judge of an Ancient Israelite tribe. Satan bets God that he can make Job blaspheme God through ever escalating violence and loss. Will Job question God’s promise to reward the righteous, even when his prayers for mercy go unanswered?

In this dark, twisted comedy Thomas Bradshaw brings an honest, un-cynical adaptation of the book of Job. “We are living in this oddly religious moment in America. I did a ton of research. The Talmud has like eight different theories about when Job lived and who he was, so I had to sit down with a Jewish scholar and figure out which would be best for my purposes.”
