About this show

Set in the center ring under the Big Top of a traveling circus that has seen better days, Archibald MacLeish's Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a re-telling of the Book of Job. Zuss and Nickles, popcorn and balloon vendors, decide to take on the roles of God and Satan, and together, they push J.B. through his search for justice in the world toward his discovery of what must take its place. All 23 roles in City Lit's production will be played by an ensemble of nine mature actresses.
