Jesuit playwright Bill Cain has done it again. Following his critically acclaimed play "Equivocation," which premiered in 2009, Father Cain is back with his latest offering, "How to Write a New Book for the Bible." Rector Pat Howell, S.J., attended a preview of the play, which is at the Seattle Repertory Theatre through Feb. 5. In his latest column for The Seattle Times, Father Howell writes: "(Cain's play) invites all of us to discover our own symbols and to write our own sacred story. Simultaneously, it's a revelation about the Bible itself as the intimate, confusing, ongoing saga of God's love for every family."
Read Father Howell's column for a recounting of the conversation he had with Father Cain at the preview.
