Much a Jew About Nothing - five short plays (Paperback)
From award-winning playwright and screenwriter Mark Troy, Much a Jew About Nothing is a collection of five short plays, all theatrical in size and presentation, that explore relationships. In Afterpiece, two hack actresses finally realize that cheating on their husbands during the road company of their show might not be such a good idea. Especially since they might not be doing the "right" show anyway. Pupik centers on a young woman who, as a last resort, introduces her fiance, whom she dresses like Moses, to her favorite uncle, hoping he will be accepted into the family even though he's not as religious. In Sister Snell, a young architectural student shows up for a job interview with a world renowned architect and she is stunned to find that not only is the woman a flat out disgusting human being, but for some reason, she is dressed like a nun. The Modern American Romance Not Often Seen delves into a girl's attempt to find true love. She goes too far in drugging her date, temporarily paralyzing him, as a way of telling him how perfect they are for each other. Hood Ratz explores two very religious brothers who hire an over-sexed private investigator to find their long lost brother whom they never met.
