The Baha’i youth in our community of Bamenda, Cameroon, wish to perform a play for the upcoming Bicentenary. I learned about your play “A Gift for Baha’u’llah” and wondered if the script could be make available for other communities to use.
Sincerely,
Dave

Hi David! That’s wonderful to hear! I’ll email you directly about getting in touch with the Baha’is in Whittlesea. We merely added the video to Baha’i Blog and sadly, we do not have access to the script ourselves.
