Drama Desk nominee Frank Blocker presents his new solo show Fearless Moral Inventory, directed by Helena Gleissner.
The piece introduces the general public to 64 characters all of whom are channeled through Mr. Blocker; the single man on stage ruining his health to deliver this comedy about a group of people, the citizenry of the play, who have been forced to take complete honest stock of their lives and the lives of those around them. What is called for here is complete HONESTY. What is also called for here is complete COURAGE. As these people grapple with the truth about themselves try not to judge them too harshly; but rather fairly and with love. The laughter is free.
Those on stage being challenged to tell the truth come from many and varied walks of life. There is Marvin, the blind guy who dates redheads. Followed closely by The Very Right Reverend Doctor Raymond B. Smythe who loathes pervs. Richard, the serial banker. Anna Mae, the reluctant widow. Jon-Paul R. Georges, the ingrate son. The much too involved Mother on a mission to ruin a honeymoon. Joe Tennent, the murderous landlord. Sister Aloysius and Sister Theresa. Iona Winchester, the mad hatter. Franklin Ian Brown, a performer of sorts. Jackie Oh. Henrik, Jr., the clairvoyant cab driver. Carl Joe, the honorary Blood. Lois, Lottie's best friend. And Sue-Sue Daniels the addicted Everywoman from the deep South. To name but a few.
