SEARCHING FOR GOD IN SUBURBIA: 7 Tales from Beyond... The City
Includes 2 Heideman Award Finalists!
In these seven short plays, the standard suburban universe is turned topsy-turvy. As interconnected characters go about their daily lives – tucking in their kids at bedtime, dealing with infidelity, making time for the gym – the unexpected is always just around the corner. Sometimes it’s the boogeyman, or an alien invasion, or just the surprise of a true human connection. Includes: The Collectors, Beddy-Bye, Indian Guys, Health & Fitness, Honey, The Well of Souls and The Unknown.
Both THE COLLECTORS and BEDDY-BYE were finalists for the Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Heideman Award (2006 & 2007, respectively.)
SEARCHING FOR GOD IN SUBURBIA was a Eugene O’Neill Theater Center National Playwrights Conference semi-finalist.
