Piedmont Theatre presents J.B.
Placeholder Image

What if tomorrow you lost everything? That is the question author Archibald MacLeish asks in his Pulitzer and Tony award-winning play, "J.B.," a contemporary retelling of the Book of Job.

"The story of ‘J.B.’ poses questions that people have asked for centuries," said the play’s director Melanie Martin Long.

"Why do we suffer? Does love exist even in a time of devastation? In the face of great loss, would we raise our fist and rage at God, or would we look to the future with hope knowing that God loves us? ‘J.B.’ is not a style or period play, rather it is a story that carries on through generations."

The play will be held at 7:30 p.m., April 11-13 and 2 p.m. April 14, at the Piedmont College Swanson Center Blackbox Theater in Demorest. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

Piedmont faculty, staff and students are admitted free. Ticket reservations can be made in advance online at, by phone at 706-778-3000 ext 1355, or by email at
