Carter’s Pill

This was the first play I ever wrote, and I wrote the whole thing sitting backstage when I was playing the part of Peachy in The Last Night of Ballyhoo, during the summer of 2000. I basically sat in this airplane bathroom of a backstage in this tiny barn theatre in South Haven, MI, put on the Gladiator soundtrack in my portable cd player, and wrote this play while I was waiting for the hour and a half I had before I ever went on the stage. The play itself is basically just an expression of my high school experience and what I learned about image, beauty, and sex.
