Coming Spring 2024 Ronnie Larsen Presents Plays of Wilton
Wilton Manors, Florida
A Hasidic Jew and a Southern Baptist cowboy struggle to reconcile their faith and family with their sexuality. Poetic and lyrical, the play is a beautiful exploration of religious and sexual identity, clashing cultures, loyalty, hopes and dreams, parental bonds and attendant feelings of safety or threat. It is a plea for understanding and tolerance at a time of fear and religious, moral, and political polarization.

THE CROSS AND THE SABER
The play takes place in a not so distant future, a future one can well imagine but hopes will never occur.
REVEREND ISAIAH PROFFIT has been arrested and locked up for High Treason - Fourteen Counts - by the State because he refuses to promote the political agenda and candidate slate of the Religious Right. Proffit is met in his jail cell by STONE , Head Interrogator and ardent supporter of the regime, who just happens to be a robot, part of a secret government program, as do other players in this story. Will Proffit succumb to the pressures by the State or risk his life and hold to his beliefs? That is just one of the questions asked in The Cross and The Saber.
In Development with Lower Depth Theatre Ensemble, Los Angeles.
