The Trial of Mira Vance(Full Length)

As an extreme form of confession, The Clarified Church of the Cross drugs 18-year-old Mira Vance, putting her into a hallucinogenic coma. When her hallucination takes the shape of a court room occupied by the people of her past, Mira rushes to the stand to defend her life. Ultimately, the overbearing Judge must decide what sentence matches Mira’s sins. After all, she cannot return to reality until her soul is properly cleansed.

This is the first play in the trilogy titled, “The Sacred Trilogy.”
