One Particularly Bad Day for Jonathan Blake

Read the Play (minus the ending)

A Dark, Very Dark Urban Comedy
3W / 1M / 1 V.O.
Approximate Playing time:  2 hours

Elements of this story of love, hate, betrayal, guilt, revenge and retribution suggest a Jacobean Tragedy, but the play is, in fact, a contemporary dark comedy—very dark . . .

On the day of his 50th High School Class Reunion [An event he has no earthly intention of attending] successful ghost writer Jonathan Blake receives from across the country a Reunion Directory.  He has long since changed his name, his address, his life style, and himself to the extent that no one from those long-ago days of young love, abundant sex, excessive infatuation and occasional fulfillment could possibly know how to find him. Yet someone has and soon he is surrounded by women all of whom evoke memories of his callow past; women who intend to destroy him for his youthful indiscretions, and will stop at nothing to satisfy their obsessive resolve. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
