Seymour: The Last Fallen Angel is a dynamic character study in which a young man desperately tries to rationalize his feelings of doubt and guilt brought on by the unbending nature of religion. With the imagination of a child and the reading of a scholar, Seymour plays multiple characters as he acts out the fallacies and paradoxes of the world’s three major religions, especially Christianity, with his only friend, a battered sofa name Melba.
