Drama. Poetry. It's easy to dismiss the Holy Ghost People. They travel door-to-door in white sheets spouting pseudoscience about time travel, wormholes, and a new galactic gospel. Most of the town has already laughed them away. But when the Holy Ghost People start to perform "miracles," denial becomes difficult, and conversation quickly shifts to what ought to be done. A new play in verse about science, religion, and group mentality by poet Joshua Young.
Joshua Young is the author of PSALMS FOR THE WRECKAGE (Plays Inverse, 2017), THE HOLY GHOST PEOPLE (Plays Inverse, 2014), and, with Alexis Pope, I Am Heavy w/ Feeling: A Correspondence (Fog Machine, 2017), as well as three other collections. His work has appeared in Gulf Coast, Puerto del Sol, Fugue, Court Green, and Vinyl, among others. Young lives in Chicago with two humans.
