Presence, the Play blends magical realism with spirituality in an immersive audio adventure.
Presence, the Play offers a penetrating perspective on the vital role personal presence plays in the essence of life. This timely, captivating novel speaks to a growing hunger for a way of life that’s real and tangible, the opposite of an artificial existence lived in a realm of mediated connectivity.
The protagonist of Presence, the Play is a playwright and monk named Script who lives on the Isle of Estillyen. On the opening night of Presence, Script’s long-awaited play, he suffers a devastating fall in the theatre balcony and lapses into a prolonged coma. The novel plays out in Script’s comatose state.
Presence, the Play offers a meticulously crafted storyline evoking the imaginative prose of J. R. R. Tolkien, the spirited perception of C. S. Lewis, and the dramatic flair of Dante’s Divine Comedy. Listeners will join Script on an epic mission to save the Isle of Estillyen from the forces of darkness, experiencing many daunting adventures along the way.
“Families looking for an exceptionally well-produced story for all ages will enjoy Presence, the Play. The message may feel familiar, but the outstanding editing, sound effects, and high quality vocal talent elevates the plot. A good family-friendly audio to help generate conversation about how we impact (small and large) members of our community.” (Kaite Stover, director of Reader Services, Kansas City Public Library)
