2009—The Opiate of the Missus and The Great Vindaloo



Two One-Act Plays
Written by Doug Reed and Philip Heckman


Directed by Deanna Reed


We all have things we say we believe, but how do we react when those things turn out to be true?  In Doug Reed’s The Opiate Of The Missus, a McCarthy era congressman runs for re-election on a platform of fighting Godless Communism.  God throws a wrench into things—by making an unexpected appearance.

The Great Vindaloo, by Philip Heckman, depicts the connection between two men of different worlds, each under attack, each unable to defend himself.  In times of despair, can you find inspiration in the lives of others? If someone looks to you for their survival, they must hope the lifeline works both ways.
