[ Pdf End Days ½ mannerpunk PDF ] by Deborah Zoe Laufer ✓ Pretty funny I guess I d have to see it staged but on the page I often wondered the line between authentic character and gimic the kid who dresses up like Elvis, the Goth, etc.
A truly fun and meaningful play about science, religion, love, family, and recovering from tragedy Despite the dramatic nature of its title and summary, End Days is actually a very mellow play It s not about big, showstopping moments and dramatic confrontations, it s about the contrast and chemistry between very likable, very believable characters I was worried that this play would be one of those pro atheist anti religion works, but that is not the case Deborah Zoe Laufer does a great job of respecting her audience regardless of what beliefs they subscribe to and what life experiences they ve endured I should also mention that this play is incredibly funny without the humor feeling forced.
I highly recommend End Days to just about anyone with a couple hours to spare I hope to direct this play one day.
This is one of those plays that made me laugh and moved me I recommend.
In Deborah Zoe Laufer s End Days, a suburban family is undergoing a spiritual crisis following the September 11th attacks Sylvia Stein has turned to Christianity to save her disaffected husband Arthur and her rebellious teenage daughter Rachel But as Sylvia races around preparing for the Rapture, Rachel is learning that there are things in Heaven and Earth than are dreamt of in her philosophy Hmmm not really While End Days fails to explore in any depth the religious scientific connections forgivably, I think this is a comic play after all , it touches on the debate and on virtually every dysfunction of the modern family parent teenage relationships, post tragedy trauma, loss of self, zealotry, adolescent bullying, adolescent love, generational mis communication, and on Sylvia has bizarre conversations with erotic undertones with Jesus, while Rachel f This is a great play It is so funny and has so many great lines At the same time though, there are dark undertones that run throughout the play I thoroughly enjoyed it though and am looking forward to playing Rachel in my acting class.
