A Midsummer Night's Hangover
The full length play, A Midsummer Night's Hangover, as well as the shorter one act entitled Heaven, are both hilarious romps through the absurdity of relationships - familial, platonic, romantic, and divine. In Midsummer, two young lovers must overcome the religious rigidity of the girl's father in order to be together. Inevitably, they must escape to the woods, fake their own deaths, and summon the devil himself for assistance. Midsummer is a darkly comic world of magical realism inhabited by lonely dreamers, vengeful lovers, rabid feminists, assorted potions, and a statue that springs to life. As a compliment to this full length play, Heaven is a comedic one act that imagines a crisis in heaven wherein God Himself is suffering from a creative block and must assemble the great artists of Hell to provide inspiration. What ensues is a gentle and quirky satire of religion, love, and friendship.
