Made famous by the Everyman Players troupe and their performances at the Brussels Fair, two off-Broadway runs, five international tours and numerous tours across the United States, The Book of Job is designed for spoken and chanted choral presentation. The narrative and poetic interpretation has been performed in altar settings, on traditional theatrical stages and in an outdoor amphitheatre. The Book of Job is a story of endurance and faith that is embraced by many world cultures. Job, a very wealthy man, loses everything to invasion and disaster except his faith in God. His friends, the elders of his community, come to counsel him. Each believes that he holds the answer to Job's troubles, but Job clings only to God's promise. The voice of God speaks from a whirlwind in poetic metaphor of the vast mysteries of creation and power. Job's reverence to God remains strong and he is rewarded. Strong roles for actors with classically trained vocal skills.
