Jim Loucks' live-wire solo performance takes you back to the Deep South with preachers shoutin' from the mountaintops, mamas pickin' switches, and Hellfire just a heartbeat away. This nationally-touring show is filled with witty and insightful storytelling, quirky characters and down-home Gospel music.
Directed by Carol Rusoff.
Based loosely on Loucks' childhood experiences in small-town Georgia as a PK, or "preacher's kid," "Cemetery Golf" explores the effects of fundamentalist Christianity on a hellfire and brimstone Southern Baptist preacher and his family. Loucks' charismatic portrayal of each of the family members creates a strong performance piece that connects with an audience no matter what their religious beliefs.
Cemetery Golf received a "Critic's Pick" from the CityBeat at the Cincy Fringe, and was performed at the United Solo Festival (NY), Solofest (Albuquerque), Boulder Fringe, Oahu Fringe and will be seen at the Hollywood Fringe this June. It has also had successful runs at the Drilling Company (New York) and the Electric Lodge (Venice, CA).
