The Story

What do Mother Teresa, a bad driver, a man telling tall tales to his granddaughter, one missing golf ball, a brand new car, a hero running out of time, the misspellings of children and Satan himself have in common? They're all fodder for the not-quite-right mind of writer John Busser. These seven one act plays take you from Calcutta to Mexico, with side trips to golf courses, hospital waiting rooms, suburban homes, and car dealerships. Oh, he'll also take you to Hell and back for good measure.
