Baptized to the Bone
Written by Dave Johnson
Directed by J. Daniel Herring
Presented by The New Ensemble Theater Group

Ottis, a strapping young man in a small Southern town, is creating a "Gospel Poetry Opera." He is dying to go away and produce the work in New York but has no money and few prospectsuntil he decides to hustle Gladys, a local preacher's wife. At first, Gladys appears an easy mark for cash, but she has artistic aspirations of her own, and her demands on Ottis soon multiply. What Gladys doesn't know, however, is that Ottis is also hustling her husband, Henry, the preacher. The hustles deepen, complications ensue, and events take a completely unexpected turn. Ottis, Gladys, and Henry learn the hard way, that sometimes, deception gets you exactly what you want.
