Abstract A play which attempts to depict in a brief form the background and some of the heroic events of Bahá'í history.
Notes Although this work was approved for review at the time, its portrayal of the Báb (as "the Youth") and Bahá'u'lláh (as "the Comforter") would need to be modified since it is not permissible to portray the Manifestations of God on stage. For example, the House of Justice has written: " is not permissible to portray on the stage the figure of the Manifestation of God, nor even of the Master... The Universal House of Justice considers it inappropriate to represent the Guardian of the Faith as a character in a play. The use of light, either of great intensity or in different colours, needs your careful consideration. If the use of light in any way at all suggests a personification of the Manifestation of God it should not be used, but if it can be done without in any way giving the impression that the Prophet is being represented or personified then there is no objection to its use." (Compilation on the Arts, no. 70)
