I recently directed and provided media direction for this play, produced by TLU Dramatic Media at Texas Lutheran University.
A satirical look at the end of times as brought to you by... cable television! Virtual Devotion features a day in the life of a zealous but shattered family, trying to find salvation through—and in spite of—their faith. Pete, a televangelist for "The Mature Warriors for Christ," preaches violent hate against sinners to his 35 million viewers. Anne, a sweet young telemarketer for the Happy Halo Ministry is desperate to raise money to send religious CDs to children in Africa. Ruth is a TV junkie, viewing the world from her armchair until she sees the face of Ezekiel the prophet in her tapioca pudding. And Jesus, only Son of the Living God, has come back to Earth. But why now? And will anyone notice? All four eventually meet through the Home Shopping Network selling religious artifacts, just moments before what may just be the end of the world.
