Matt Boyle invited me to bring two short plays in to be read and recorded for a podcast. I immediately knew I wanted to use a short script I wrote 10 years ago, while in Seminary…
“Love Gerald” While they await the bus on the first day of fourth grade, Sherry tells Rachel about the new religious movement she has joined over the summer. (starring Maggie Boyle and my daughter Sarah)
and I wrote a new one…
“The Zeus is Hungry”. Enraged by the abduction of her daughter, the Greek grain-goddess Demeter causes crop-failure throughout the land. The storm god Zeus shows up and commands her to reactivate food growth, so that he can be celebrated at a harvest festival. (starring Amy Feder and my brother A. Peter Snodgrass)
The plays about each about 10 minutes, followed by interviews (first with the performers, and then Matt asking me some questions about religion).

Thank you Matt, Richard, Maggie, Sarah, Amy and Peter.
