general philosophy when it comes to Christianity and the Dramatic Arts
centers around Truth. Drama is about searching for it: the "truth
of the moment," the "spine of the character," the "heart
of the matter." Christianity is about knowing it: embodied in the

for and expression of Truth.

Web's first foray into the full-length play is "Reap the Whirlwind." The play is somewhat of a response to the classic, "Inherit the Wind." This time, the evidence in favor of evolution does come up for examination, unlike the original which reversed what happened historically by making the prosecution the ones who kept science out of the courtroom. The play was extremely well received at Mississippi College where it debuted this past October. Web is currently undertaking the arduous task of publishing the play in a more universal format.
