Under the Influence of Men
AuthorJOHNSON, James - Other Plays by this Author - Contact Author
FormatFull-length.
SynopsisDOE approaches struggling young female novelist BLAIR to ghost write a memoir on his childhood relationship with an older man - the book is written and much like other childhood memoirs is a wild success -- but an interview with journalist JULIA and a meeting with troubled pharmacist CADEN begins to unravel the fiction behind the book and it becomes clear DOE isn't telling the whole truth - but when CADEN just wants to move on and maintain and when two clown costume salesmen bond over the little bit of closure they get when FERGUS buys CARRICK a copy of THE AQUARIUM as a birthday present -- does the truth matter? Who will really benefit from such revelations? Is the twenty first century a time for redemption or shut mouths? And whether we like it or not are we all under the influence of men?
