Drama/Comedy. By Nicholas A. Patricca.
Cast: 5m., 1w. Oh, Holy Allen Ginsberg is "the story of two days in the life of Gerry Gallagher, a conflicted but appealing gay Irish Catholic priest, and his long-time lover, Josh Kaplan, a Jewish atheist professor of English... In the course of the eve and day of St. Valentine, Gerry confronts an AIDS-related TB diagnosis, an archdiocesan plan to close his Puerto Rican parish to build a hospice for priests with AIDS, and an attempt to patch things up with Josh on what should be their seventh anniversary...the triumph of Ginsberg is that it never becomes heavy-handed or artificial. With liberal doses of humor provided by Gerry's Puerto Rican housekeeper, Lenore, the play moves rapidly." (Chicago Sun-Times) Unit set. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
