A unique recipe for healing: Bill Murray and a biblical text
Murray is set to play Job in a biblical reading designed to spark meaningful conversations across spiritual and political divides. The cast also included Matthew Starr, mayor of the Knox County town of Mount Vernon, who will play Job’s accuser. Knox County, a largely rural community of about 62,000 residents including a medium-size Amish population, lies about an hour east of the state capital, Columbus. An exception is Kenyon College, a small liberal arts school perched on a hill a few miles outside Mount Vernon. Theater of War held its first Job reading in Joplin, Missouri, a year after a tornado killed more than 160 people there in 2011.
