Interior Set

The setting is the bombed-out, post-holocaust sanctuary of a church, where the Reverend Eddie (clad in long underwear) prepares to deliver his final sermon: "Life Is Like a Basketball Game." Abetted by his faithful helper, the hunch-backed Brother Lawrence, Reverend Eddie first embarks on a series of wildly funny skits in which Saint Paul and Saint Timothy discuss the shaky position of women in religion; an applicant for sainthood agonizes over what form of martyrdom to pursue; and the Reverend challenges the Devil to a final showdown on the basketball court. And, throughout, there is the unseen but undeniable presence of "The Illuminati," a mysterious but all-powerful force which guides the destiny of what's left of the world, and whose baleful influence is clearly felt by Brother Lawrence as he ascends the pulpit to read the newly deceased Reverend Eddie's final words to whomever is left to hear them.
An irreverent, highly theatrical and truly hilarious send-up of organized religion. "Illuminati is a post-holocaust farce about a loony preacher who has visions of playing basketball against the Devil and conducting job interviews with sainthood applicants." —Calgary Herald. "…pokes gleeful fun at the sort of religiosity that suggests one has to suffer to find salvation…" —Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "…a very funny evening of theatre…" —The Irish Times.
