Preview: Brother Bailey's Pageant of Moral Superiority & Creation Science Island Jamboree

By Tom McElfresh · May 26th, 2009 · Fringe

Writer-director Brad Cupples says he and Ornamental Messiah Productions use comedy to “wake people up” about Creationism, which he calls “an abomination to common sense.”

Imagine, he says, a wacky 1960s beach-blanket-bingo movie.

Binky and Simone must ace a science project or spend summer in the lab instead of on the sand. Creationist Brother Bailey, an amalgam of notable televangelists, urges them to substitute his “moral opinions” for the “evils of scientific fact.”

Eight actors chase through 10 scenes. Asked if his show is blasphemous, Cupples says, “We embrace blasphemy.”

Performed at Art Academy of Cincinnati May 28 and 29 and June 2 and 5 (see map of Fringe venues here)
