RON THE BAPTIST
RON THE BAPTIST Staggers around the post apolyptic landscape carrying nothing but a soapbox and a message of hope. He shouts to the few remaining scavengers and stragglers that the ‘ Second Coming’ is at hand.
Two such survivors are ROSTOV & KIRKEGARD two women scrabbling to exist and BETH & LEM a young couple about to give birth to the new Jesus who happens to be a girl called JESSIS.
All though is not what it seems, and the new message looks on the surface to be very similar to the old message.
Ron the Baptist is a blackly black comedy set much in Samuel Beckett’s clown soaked landscapes, with a possible future the world may devolve into under Rupert Murdoch’s yoke.
Faith, Religion , politics, fascism and philosophy are all posted on these graffiti splattered bomb sites.
And after the bitter words and cynical posturings our cast are perhaps left with a 50/50 chance at hope.
