Forgiveness, self-torment, and coming out as gay

Posted on Jul 21, 2013

5 out of 5

This play opens with Samson beginning his confession
process to his priest. The confession process is
really a "flashback", as Samson has died. Josiah and
Seth are boyfriends and Samson is Josiah's cousin.
Josiah is summoned home because Samson is in the
hospital on his deathbed. Josiah goes home alone,
refusing to let Seth go with him. Seth later shows up
and what follows are some hilarious scenes. Josiah had
previously left the seminary because of his gay
relationship. The family insists on Josiah doing the
eulogy and all of the bible readings, which causes a
lot of internal conflict for him. Seth pushes Josiah
to tell his family about them. In the process of
prodding Josiah to do so, the play builds to the point
of revealing what Josiah really is terrified to tell
his parents about, which is the fact that he was a rape
victim. This play examines love, forgiveness, and
acceptance and their interrelationship. With the
exception of the actor that played the Father (priest),
the cast was incredibly compelling and came across as
having great passion. The play is a must see and has an
abundance of "serious humor", until the real tragedy
unfolds in the last ten minutes, at which time it
becomes very sad, but ends on a happy note. This is my
fifth year at the Fringe Festival and I have seen over
fifty of the Fringe plays during that time. I can
honestly say this is one of the top ten.
