Book Description

A collection of four unbelievably weird short plays, the result of the author's long association with metaphysics. Satire at its best.

1. There's a Snake in My Apple: a one-act metaphysical comedy set in the Garden of Eden, in which a very dysfunctional family succumbs to the temptation of sampling the forbidden fruit. Not only do we learn the secret of the apples, but also a possible reason Cain killed his brother Abel. (And Eve's clothes are itch weeds.)

2. Please Don't Cry, Melvin!: a metaphysical one-act comedy with a cast of subconscious minds---and they're all crazy. The story begs the question: What would happen if a subconscious mind had a nervous breakdown?

3. Oily's Conversion: a one-act comedy about a know-it-all drunken man's disastrous experience with astral projection. On the other hand, maybe it wouldn't be so funny at that. And do you think you know who God is? Really? Ha! So did Oily McIntyre!

4. The Phantom Bride: for "theater-in-the-round." A two-act comedy, in which a 19th century scullery maid's ghost thinks she has found her long-lost lover in the 21st century. The author became interested in this form of entertainment after seeing the play "Little Mary Sunshine," in which the audience and actors were almost in each others' faces. When Turner wrote "The Phantom Bride," she wanted people close enough to reach out and almost touch the actors, and to feel the cold air generated by the appearance of the spooks. She wanted the audience to see close-hand the wilted bouquets at this unusual and funny wedding....

Four humorous scripts for the price of one. Great entertainment!

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Satire at its finest May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bonnie Turner has created four different plays from different eras, each with one common thread - humorous satire at its finest. From Adam and Eve dealing with rebellious sons to the inner turmoil of one man's body parts, to an out-of-body experience gone seriously haywire, to my favorite The Phantom Bride--a quirky match made not in heaven nor in hell but in a far-out stretch of the author's vivid imagination. The setting, so clear in its brief description, made me feel as if I were part of a theatrical audience caught up in Ms. Turner's cast of characters who dared to engage me in a fantasy so bizarre it almost made sense.

More About the Author

Bonnie Turner -- one of the few remaining members of the Greatest Generation -- was born on Halloween in Independence, Missouri, at the height of the Great Depression.

Currently residing in Wisconsin, she is a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother. Her interests are many and varied, including astronomy, geography, history, yoga, philosophy, psychology, metaphysics and parapsychology. She's a self-educated jack-of-all-trades, a Mensa *almost*, a classical music and jazz fusion aficionado.

Turner's favorite authors include: Mark Twain, James A. Michener, poets Robert Service and Edgar A. Guest. Some favorite books: Giants in the Earth (O.E. Rolvaag), Steamboat Gothic (Frances Parkinson Keyes), Chesapeake (Michener), the epic poem, The Odyssey of Homer, and Harvest Home (Thomas Tryon). Favorite genres: historical fiction, young-adult fiction, literary fiction, humor, Americana, mainstream, commercial -- almost anything except violent, gory tales.

Turner learned to read in first grade from the famed "Dick and Jane" readers. Many years later, her first novel for children (The Haunted Igloo) was published by Houghton Mifflin in 1991. After that book was published, she visited grade schools with a life-sized, handmade Inuit doll, encouraging students to keep reading and writing -- and offering polar bear hugs along with her autograph.

Among her favorite fan letters are these gems: "Mrs. Turner, I'll give you a million dollars for this book!"; "Dear Mrs. Turner, Thank you for getting me out of sixth hour!!!"; "Dear Mrs. Turner, Thank you from all the lead in my pencil!"

What great kids, those middle-grade students!
