Has it been produced?  

Yes!  The Divine Visitor had its world premiere at NKU's YES Festival in 2015.  Prior to this, it had readings at the Nittany Valley Shakespeare Festival (State College, PA - 2012) and the Acadiana Repertory Theatre New Works Festival (Lafayette, LA - 2012)

What's it about?  

In a Restoration Comedy with a twist, the rake Whitestone, after faking his own death to escape his debts, finds his escape plans interrupted when he finds out every beautiful woman in town wept at his funeral.  He chooses to stay and seduce these ladies by appearing as his own ghost, but the townsfolk believe him to be an angel, and soon all of the women are hoping to be divinely inspired by this messenger of God. When a visitor who is truly from beyond arrives in town, however, Whitestone and the town of Langfoss-on--Stow will never be the same again.
