What if God told you to be a better person but the world wouldn't allow it?
Such is the dilemma facing Joe Smith, a run-of-the-mill white-collar businessman who survives an office shooting and is subsequently touched by what he believes to be a divine vision. His journey toward personal enlightenment--past greed and lust and the other deadly sins--is, by turns, tense, hilarious, profane, and heartbreaking.
Exploring the narrow path to spiritual fulfillment and how strewn it is with the funny, frantic failings of humankind, "The Break of Noon" showcases Neil LaBute at his discomfiting best.
