Augustine by E.M Baxter
An unconventional exploration of the saint's life. With the barbarians at the gates, past and future entangle themselves into the present of the aged and decrepit Augustine of Hippo as he reflects upon his life, especially his reformation from libertine to man of God, and upon his looming demise.
Originally performed by one actor assuming all 20 roles, the author always intended the play to have open casting as to the number of performers and, of course, gender-and-"race" neutrality.
