Scabies, drag queens, and talking stuffed animals.
A Lambda Literary Award finalist, Dose: Plays & Monologues is the first full-length collection of Dan Bernitt's dramatic works.
In the one-act Almost, Mark and Paul have a beer to catch up on lifesince the college dorm. When Mark asks for a hug as they say goodbye, the reticent Paul sharply refuses. How did these two young men arrive at the point where they can't even touch? At once comic and devastating, Almost quietly dissects a prejudice that does not say its name.
With a voice often likened to David Sedaris, the volume also features the texts to Bernitt's critically-acclaimed solo performances, including the tragicomic self-portrait Thanks for the Scabies, Jerkface! and the monologues "Button-Down Showgirl" and "My Parents Talk to Stuffed Animals."
