War Of The Gods

The play is about weekend caterers working at a wedding. A discussion about the wedding vows turns into a disagreement about culture, religion, science and higher power.

These colleagues engage in the conversation and in so doing understand each other better, learn more about other people’s way of life and eventually have a sense of understanding for the other person and belief choices.

The play questions religion, faith, traditions and what a God or Gods are. It challenges and forces people to think and engage about questions that society shies away from. And in the end put across the message of unity and harmony amongst people of different religions, beliefs and walks of life.
