Stage Play Reading of GLUTTONY & LUST are FRIENDS
September 2015 Reading
Written by Matthew Weaver

SYNOPSIS:

Two deadly sins, Lust and Gluttony, are bored with their daily routine. So they decide to mix things up by switching places, which means a sudden glut of erotic bakeries and a Japanese sumo wrestler being named the equivalent of People’s Sexiest Man Alive. Creatively restored by the switch, Lust and Gluttony talk the other sins into following suit, which throws the world out of balance and attracts the attentions of the virtues. Who are nobody’s idea of a picnic.

GLUTTONY – Steve Rizzo
LUST – Alissa DeGrazia
HANNAH/CHARITY – Erynn Brook

1

FOOTSTEPS by Arthur Zopellaro

I hate the sound of people walking
I thought moving to a remote cabin would help me
I’m here, all by myself, but the footsteps won’t go away

2

Drinking Game by Helen Freeman

While they sat drinking margaritas, Liz and Ann began their list. This was an important list. Pen in hand, Helen wrote the title. “People We Want to Punch in the Face”.

3

SAND by Jemma Pollari

She is as sand: he yearns for her beneath him, but the trace he leaves is dusted over by her next lover’s breath. She burns the souls that touch her.

4

One Man’s Junk by Jesse Heikkila

Rifling through the dumpster seeing sunlight reflect off of polished titanium, I used my good hand to pull at the wires and retrieve my arm.

5

Hero by Justin Boyd

A year after saving them, the acclaim had died down, the attention dried up, and Juan’s life was once again painfully mundane.

6

Not A Victim by Kelley Portwood

She sat in the dark.
A thin line of light flared to split the seam between door and floor
Shadows flowed back and forth
Door opened.
She fired.

7

The Retreat by Kymm O’Malley

Her heels echoed sharply on the tile as she walked away.
It was better this way. No goodbye. No broken promise.
A single tear fell anyway.

8

Prank Call by Lucas Ruderman

He answered the phone to what he thought was another prank call only to realize after several profane minutes, it was his mother.

9

Improvising by Mark Farley

Tossing “50 Shades of Grey” aside, I nibbled on my wife’s thigh. It was lonely being the only survivor of the plane crash.

10

The Big One by René Claveau

The line hums as it speeds out. Locking it, the rod is ripped from my grasp and is gone. The sea rises, rises. No one will believe this.

I spied Dita in the park
Instant love what a lark
I sidled over and just said
Hello lovely are you wed
She smiled her smile and replied
Now that is something I’ve never tried

THE DANCE by Ashley Gamrat

Taking my hand, wrapping us into one. Gliding across the dance floor. Smiles surround us. The first dance is timeless, never outdated.

LITERALLY? by Alex Dzialo

Because others advised it, Peter pinched pennies. His fingers threatened to bleed, but he kept at it. He never handled metaphors very well.

DISAPPEARING INTO LOVE by Annie Avery

There was a knock at the door. She peeked through the window and saw him there. She opened the door, jumped into his arms and they vanished.

TWO WIVES by Joni Norby

The party knew the end was near as Belle turned to stare at my new, shiny wedding band, babe in arms, and her red-faced husband by my side.

DAWN TWITTER by George G A Wensley

Dawn the bird waited for the sun to arise,
to see who could tweet the loudest.
The rose coloured sun arose
and she was a great dawn twitter!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? by Myriam Hammami

Aly was fond of practical jokes. One day he jokingly pushed a woman into a river. She drowned. He’s been in prison since then.
