god's plot
written and directed by mark jackson
original music by daveen digiacomo

"I fear your independence of mind is the way to damnation."

Art, religion, politics - a love story. In 1665 the first shot heard round the world came from a play performed in a tavern that took satirical aim at the King of England. Mark Jackson uses this provocative event to create a tale of political jockeying, clandestine love, and unholy music - all according to God's plot for this land we call home.
