DUCK HUNTER SHOOTS ANGEL
by Mitch Albom
This is an uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are pursued by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don’t believe any of it – until feathers, wings, and a tiara are discovered along the way. The play interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp. Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, this is a comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson.
Produced by Special Arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
