If you know that Clive Barker’s written a play, you suspect it’s the kind of play that would be produced by Phoenix’s Nearly Naked Theatre. The author/director/visual artist has written a truckload of distinctive short stories, but you have to admit his visions have really spread through popular culture via the Hellraiser and Candyman films, not to mention comic books of the horror genre. Barker created The History of the Devil for the stage to depict Lucifer’s striving to return to Heaven after multiple millennia among us. You’ve been among us; can you really blame him?
