The episodic life
by r.j. soule

"THE EPISODIC LIFE is a full-length play inspired by the old morality plays along with a hint of Peer Gynt. It is about the life of a middle aged gay man named Vincent. It is told via four episodes of his life, with no intermission.

Episode one, OF IMITATION AND FLATTERY, tells of his days as a
playwright in a small theatre. Episode two, IN THIS CIRCLE OF HELL, tells of his falling from grace as a drug addict. Episode three, HOLY ELMER G, tells of his redemption during his involvement with the church. The final episode, SWIFTCURRENT BY DUSK, deals with death, loss and moving on to salvation. Along with the four episodes, there is a prologue, introducing the characters, and an epilogue. The play requires 3 men and 2 women. It is a minimalistic play and requires little scenery. The play has a running time of about 90 minutes."
