Three full-length plays. Nun, Set and Match takes a look at chicken hawks, legal and illegal, and questions the so-called age of consent laws passed to mollify religious morality. Sister Angelica... More > anchors two stories of teenagers in love with their elders, and has a rogue story of her own. The Letter from Mount Idy follows the lives of two gay and religious boys from their meeting at a state fair, through their trials in the rural mid-west as they marry and adopt children. Gradually, they are accepted by their community, and wonder what all the fuss was about. Oh yes, one is Mormon and the other is Amish. The Man About Town is a fantasy inspired by the life and times of Lucius Beebe, designed to return spectacle to the stage in an era when it was commonplace. Lovers of Wagnerian operas will hate it, while railroad buffs will applaud.
