Hey, why not? I hope the play is a success!
Looks like they let you read it once free, and then charge. In any case, since my mention is just one paragraph, it’s a fair excerpt:
Drawing from the Hebrew Bible, playwright and Bureau of Labor Statistics bureaucrat Jason Ford retells the story of Jonah and the whale in his Jonah Dove. He sees it as a story of guilt and a dysfunctional family updated to 21st-century Washington. As we go through life, whether or not were believers, said Ford, who attends Fourth Presbyterian Church in Bethesda, while his wife belongs to Ohr Kodesh in Chevy Chase, we all feel the pull of our conscious. For him that makes Jonah Dove relevant today. Ford adds that the play has its humorous side, too, and describes it as perfect for anyone who feels guilt or has problems with their relatives.”

It's got just about everything! Demonic possesion starring the Texas Chainsaw massacre demon. Time travel galore. Alien interventions, on multiple scenarios. Just about every vile and perverted act, human and animal. Plus a bonus spoiler book at the end!
It does have the Good News of God’s love for us.
