  1. 1. Lazarus Laughed by Eugene O'Neill

    "Lazarus Laughed" is a play that explores the transformation of Lazarus after being raised from the dead by Jesus Christ. Rather than focusing on the miracle itself, the narrative delves into the profound psychological and spiritual change within Lazarus, who emerges from the tomb with an unshakable peace and a contagious laughter, signifying his transcendence over the fear of death. As he shares his newfound enlightenment with those around him, he faces both admiration and opposition, challenging the societal norms and religious dogmas of his time. The play is a philosophical meditation on the meaning of life and death, the power of joy, and the potential for human beings to live free from the paralyzing grip of fear.
