9780881453607: An Impending Rupture Of The Belly

How far would YOU go to defend your family? AN IMPENDING RUPTURE OF the BELLY concerns Clay Stilts' desire to fortify his house in preparation for both a new baby and the apocalypse he's convinced is just around the corner. Clay worries about so many things, nuclear terrorism, avian bird flu, killer earthquakes, riots, small pox crop dusters flying over Dodger Stadium. His obsessions are sidetracked when a slowly escalating battle with a neighbor who refuses to curb his dog explodes in an impulsive act of violence. In one reckless moment, Clay's world spins out of control, becoming a microcosm for a global struggle against threats to our security, both real and imagined. "Pelfrey is undeniably talented ... a gripping, funny play." -Los Angeles Times "Matt Pelfrey's galvanizing black comedy resembles those nightmares that nag at one's psyche the following day - too off-kilter to accept as reality, yet infused with imagery too haunting to dismiss ... Pelfrey's thought-provoking work is mesmeric from the first moment to the last." -Backstage "Pelfrey has a gift for oddball concepts and sardonic dialogue." -Variety "A brilliant little bulletin from the paranoia frontier." -L A City Beat
