God has decided to have a trial in Heaven to decide whether Mankind should continue to exist. Metatron, a Cherub, is the Judge as he was appointed by God to oversee the visible Universe. Mr. Snake from - the Garden of Eden was appointed to be the Defense Attorney to save Mankind. The Angel Gabriel was appointed to Prosecuting Attorney. The Heavenly Trial is a play in 4 Acts which enlightens its reader for the reasons Mankind has been such a failure through the thousands of years of Man’s existence. If Mankind is to survive, Man must recognize his reluctance to suppress his inherited animal instincts and animal drives. The play is filled with humor and music and comedy.
