Description

Joshua and Amelia are having relationship problems. Surprisingly, the immortality-granting pears James comes home with don’t seem to help either of them.  

Joshua Consumed An Unfortunate Pear  is included in Niagara Falls and Other Plays.


Joshua Consumed an Unfortunate Pear was commissioned and produced by City Theatre in Miami, FL as a part of Summer Shorts 19. Producing Artistic Director John Manzelli and Literary Director Susan Westfall. It premiered at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts on June 12, 2014. Directed by John Manzelli. 
Characters
JOSHUA – a man, sort of an everyman, a little too obsessed with the big things and definitely not the best at being attentive.
AMELIA – a woman, Joshua’s wife, frustrated by all of the little things, way past grand gestures, and filled with a rage she doesn’t like.
DEATH – a woman, busy, fond of making an entrance, annoyed when her precious time is wasted.
CHORUS – a group of people with a lot of inside information, a knack for moving and speaking in unison, and a penchant for honesty regardless of the circumstances. Maybe they’re all immortal like Joshua. Maybe they’re all injured in weird ways. But they’re still up beat.
