Dramatic Comedy

Aloysius want to sing with his grandmother in the church choir,but he can't carry a tune! When Ali asks his grandmother why he can't sing, she tells him that singing is a gift from God, so Ali decides to search for God to ask Him for the "gift." In this search he meets unusual characters, among them: Virgil, an Indian taxi driver; a rollerblading girl with orange hair who tries to teach Ali how to sing like Elvis; an Italian boatman; two eccentric sisters who run a homeless shelter; a penniless man who thinks he's Humphrey Bogart; and a weeping bride who wants to sing a song about a rattlesnake at her wedding. Ali's odyssey leads him to big truths about the world. Back at home, he wonders if one of those strange people could have been God in disguise. He sings a song about a rabbit. He sings well. Not as good as others, but not too badly. Satisfied at last, he thanks God and goes to sleep. Area staging. Approximate running time 90 minutes.
