Preview: Cemetery Golf

By Tom McElfresh · May 26th, 2009 · Fringe

Writer-performer Jim Loucks adapted recollections of his Southern Christian childhood into a multi-character, 75-minute drama requiring one actor and one bench. Jim, the 10-year-old storyteller, is as much fiction as biography.

According to producer-wife Deb Loucks, Golf “sharply criticizes fundamentalist Christianity but from a humanist point of view.” Not any sort of satire, it examines how religion uses fear to control people and the negative effect that has on lives.

Making his Cincinnati debut, Loucks has played Golf engagements in New York and Los Angeles and will travel to Fringes in Boulder and San Francisco.

Performed at Media Bridges May 28 and 30 and June 1, 4 and 6 (see map of Fringe venues here)
