Two men in an apartment with their opposing beliefs in this play by Cormac McCarthey. The black guy, a former convict which believes in God, just saved the white agnostic professor from jumping in front of the express train. He won't let the depressed man leave, without following him, and feel he's in this situation for a reason, decided by God. An intense chamber play about belief or unbelief, and a conversation about what's true and important in life, or not. Written by

Black (Samuel L. Jackson
) sits down in the middle of the couch and puts his arms across the back. In the next shot, he's a little more to one side with one arm resting on the side of the couch. In a shot after that, he's back sitting in the middle of the couch. 1:13-1:14 See more
The light is all around you but you don't see nothing but shadow. And you're the one causing it. It's you. You're the shadow! That's the point.
