Oh, Holy Allen Ginsberg (manuscript)
Oh, Holy Allen Ginsberg (manuscript)
Winner of the Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival Oscar Wilde Award for outstanding achievement in new writing for the theatre
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.

This title is in manuscript format. Upon licensing, a permission to photocopy form will be issued.
