Synopsis

"The metaphor of The Great Theatre of the World, in which God is a theatre director and the World is his stage manager, appealed to me strongly. So did the humor and the pathos and the poetic wonder of the play," writes Mr. Mitchell. On come King, Beauty, Rich Man, Peasant, Beggar, and Child to play their parts in this play of life. We have but one entrance and one exit for our short but important performance on the world's stage. "All you who enter the earth through a cradle, and leave it via a grave, your Director is looking down today, to see how his actors behave."
