    Clever, sassy, and funny from beginning to end! Filled with echoes of Paul Rudnick and other great LGBT comedy writers, John Bavoso's nifty comedic voice lends itself nicely to this hilarious take on the classic Bible tale. Read it (better yet, PRODUCE it) and laugh out loud!

    I'm so glad John Bavoso was covered by Unknown Playwrights. He has got a sharp, snappy sense of humor and is able to deliver some fantastic lines. I was crying - there are so many amazing one-liners in just 8 pages. And even though it's a comedy, there is such a big commentary on so many other things, including religion and relationships. This is a writer everyone needs to know.

    Such a clever play! Bavoso puts a spin on the classic story that is fresh, original, and just downright funny. There were several lines that had me laughing out loud. This play also has a ton of heart. Would be a great addition to any short play festival.
