    JB is a remake of the Book of Job. Before you groan with anti-scripture sentiment, let me assure you that it's really, really great.

    It's a play in verse, which makes for a very interesting read, to say the least. Not to mention it deal with one of the most basic questions: why do we suffer?

    It's a great transplant of Job into the modern world. It has that whole Lost Generation/Angry Young Men feel to it -- and end to moral apathy, etc.

    Splendid read. Something I'd like to see/do on a stage someday.

    Is there any way that I can get the play via internet?

    It's MacLeish (e before i in the last name).
    Order it from amazon, I'm sure they have it. It really, really is a fabulous play.
