Synopsis

The Devil, the Prince of the World, is appealing in a court of law for his exile on earth to be ended. Witnesses are called to give evidence for and against him, and their stories are recreated - beginning with the Devil’s fall from Heaven and his first encounters with primitive man, and moving up to the sophisticated horrors of the twentieth century. As the story unfolds the scope of Satan’s power and influence are revealed. The collapse of Empires, the Crucifixion, witch-burnings, bare-fist boxing, anarchy and World War - the Devil has his hand in them all. Mingling wit with high drama, this play is an enthralling war of nerves, fought in the courtroom and through history itself, probing the continual fascination of Satan and the Supernatural.
