Holloway, Anne Frances (1999) To whom the glory. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
To Whom the Glory is a two-act play set in the Virginia jail cell of John Brown after his failed raid on the Harpers Ferry armoury in 1859. Brown shared his cell with one of the other raiders, Aaron Stevens. Brown was 59, and Stevens was 28. This play suggests what could have happened in that cell. The theme of the play is that belief in God does not absolve the individual from responsibility for his or her actions, and the central action revolves around the relationship between Stevens, who blames Brown for his current situation, and Brown, who attributes his actions to the will of God.
