God's Ear by Jenny Schwartz

Look, you're fairly intelligent. You know your stuff. You're shopping at the Drama Book Shop, right? So I can only assume you care about the ever-evolving literary forms of the theatre.

Jenny Schwartz agrees with you. As Mel and Ted cope with the near-drowning of their young son, God's Ear is an intimate hurricane in plot alone, but Schwartz wrenches her characters' inner turmoil to the surface through a relentless language that leaves the audience giggling dumbly and blushing for shame.

Sensing gimmickry in the cast list? Breathe easy - Schwartz is a far cry from cleverer-than-thou, and in a play that lays bare the precious like so much evidence before the court of humanity, the Tooth Fairy and GI Joe must report for duty.

New Georges' death-defying production is being revived at the Vineyard right now, and you should probably see it.

Scenes/Monologues: Scenework, scenework. Mostly for middle-aged men and women.
