Joshua Consumed an Unfortunate Pear
by Steve Yockey
Joshua Consumed an Unforunate Pear is part of Niagara Falls and Other Plays, a collection of heightened short plays that explore what happens when everyday life rubs up against the messy and fantastic mysteries of the universe.
Joshua and Amelia are having relationship problems. Surprisingly, the immortality-granting pears James comes home with don’t seem to help either of them.
Joshua Consumed An Unfortunate Pear is included in Niagara Falls and Other Plays.

AMELIA – a woman, Joshua’s wife, frustrated by all of the little things, way past grand gestures, and filled with a rage she doesn’t like.
DEATH – a woman, busy, fond of making an entrance, annoyed when her precious time is wasted.
CHORUS – a group of people with a lot of inside information, a knack for moving and speaking in unison, and a penchant for honesty regardless of the circumstances. Maybe they’re all immortal like Joshua. Maybe they’re all injured in weird ways. But they’re still up beat.
