by Gregory Von Dare

God is not in a good mood, and he’s especially upset about those jokes that begin, “A priest, a minister and a rabbi…”. Some trailer park is going to suffer, that’s for sure.

When his shy teenage daughter commits suicide after being outed as a lesbian, religious Joe B. prays that he be allowed to speak directly with God, because he simply can’t fathom what happened, nor can he stand the grief and guilt he feels. His request is granted, but he must wait until the Supreme Being has a free moment to see him. While he waits, Joe witnesses all kinds of cruelty and excesses caused by religious fundamentalism and intolerance. When Yahweh finally arrives, he’s bitter, narcissistic, belligerent, and not very interested in anything Joe has to say. But, the appearance of an older and wiser God helps Joe put things into perspective and helps him find peace.

(Two-act comedy – about 80 minutes – six characters)

She claims that she cannot help him get home, her powers are too weak. But she slowly and powerfully seduces him and they have a volcanic affair that includes some raging kinky sex. After two years in residence, Odysseus also sleeps with one of the serving girls and she confesses that Calypso is a powerful goddess who could send him home any time.
