JOHN PAUL EXCLUDED FROM PARADISE – a drama script about religion and faith
In this drama script about religion and faith, the Pope, John Paul who has died, approaches the pearly gates of Heaven accompanied by Michael. However, when he gets there, he is shocked to find that he is not allowed to pass through the gates by Peter. When he asks why, all the questionable things he used his power to do are called into question, and that, despite his great faith, these actions have led to him being excluded from paradise. This play brings up the question of faith, and belief and puts forward the point that, no matter how great your faith or how strongly you profess your faith, it is the work a person performs while they are alive that really count. It’s purpose is to get the audience thinking about the purpose and focus of faith, using the charismatic but controversial figure of John Paul II as the catalyst.
