PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

It's a roller coaster ride from Genesis to Revelations as three unlikely guides whisk us on an irrepresible romp through the good book-- as you've absolutely never imagined it before! Whether you're Baptist or Catholic, Muslim or Jew, Atheist or Alien, you'll be tickled by the absurd antics of these pranksters. By the zany authors of The Complete History of America (Abridged) and The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged).

The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But
by Mama Alma

THIS REVIEW REFERS TO THE PLAY NOW SHOWING THROUGH MAY 13 2007 AT ART STATION. DON'T YOU JUST HATE IT WHEN YOU LIKE SOMETHING WELL ENOUGH TO SUBMIT A REVIEW AND THEY DON'T PUT THEIR INFO UP??? AND YES, I TRIED TO SUBMIT IT ONTO THE ART STATION PAGE BUT GOT THAT STUPID 404 ERROR, SO FORGET ABOUT IT.

ART STATION'S PRESENTATION FEATURES THE TALENTS OF GEOFF UTERTHARDT, BRIAN MERCER AND NEAL GHANT.

Some people have complained that the Bible should not be used as a source for humor. Those people should probably not see this play. Instead they should go contemplate the platypus. What exactly was God thinking? Was He having an off day, or was He thinking "THIS'LL blow their minds"? I'm pretty sure God has a great sense of humor or we'd all be toast. 2,000 years after the Atonement and we're still playing the spiritual equivalent of "Chopsticks."

This play contains giggles and gaggles, yuks and guffaws, some audience dressup, the tiniest bit of political commentary (along the lines of why must God's children continue to kill each other in His name), and a great deal of good natured ribbing about a Book we all claim to revere, but as the play notes, don't always understand as well as we pretend. (Don't worry: they have a song for that.) In the end, the message is clear that we're all God's children, with the emphasis on "child."

So, if you like your religion pristine, wrapped in a virginal shroud, if it's a delicate thing which must be secreted in the holy of holies, set apart high on an altar, protected in a golden ark, then this is not the play for you. If, on the other hand, you've actually read parts (or all) of the Bible, if your religion is a tough, sinewy thing that pulls you through the valley of the shadow of death, if God is your passenger on I-285 as well as your co-pilot, and you talk to your creator as you mow the lawn, fix your dinner or contemplate life while in your privy closet, then give us a big Amen! and come on down, ya'll. This is a play for you.
