But all the other boys are going to the public execution (a new play) by Daniel Glenn Away
But all the other boys are going to the public execution, a metaphysical medieval sex comedy, is a new play examining our culture’s poisonous cocktail of homophobia, racism, and fear. Set in England during the madcap years of the bubonic plague, this dark comedy follows Sarah, a woman who's doing the best she can to raise her son in a bigoted, bacterial world of extremes. She suspects the trouble, as is so often the case, is that fear keeps people from truly knowing each other. So while she poses as a mischievous nun, founds the world's first non-profit, and finds herself high priestess of a foot-scratching cult, she all the while wonders this: what if Enlightenment is really a step backward, and what we need is a return to the Dark Ages?
Corey, along with local playwright Daniel Glenn, will be using his Idea Capital grant to hold auditions for the nine-member cast and then direct a three-day workshop of the new script.
