PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

An irreverent, highly theatrical and truly hilarious send-up of organized religion. The setting is the bombed-out, post-holocaust sanctuary of a church, where the Reverend Eddie (clad in long underwear) prepares to deliver his final sermon: "Life Is Like a Basketball Game." Abetted by the hunch-backed Brother Lawrence, Reverend Eddie first embarks on a series of wildly funny skits in which Saint Paul and Saint Timothy discuss the shaky position of women in religion; an applicant for sainthood agonizes over what form of martyrdom to pursue; and the Reverend challenges the Devil to a final showdown on the basketball court.

[REVIEW THIS PRODUCTION]

Twisted humor, not for the bible-challenged.

4.0
A dark comedy that pokes fun at organized religion. Two excellent actors, playing multiple roles. A little trouble with scene changes, on a tech level, but easily over looked. The Reverend has these 'visions' on how religion might have evolved to what it is today. His assistant keeps trying to keep the Reverend from straying too close to the edge. Truely funny stuff, but not for the bible-banger crowd. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
