THE RETURN TO MORALITY is a lightning-paced political satire about the unraveling of a well-meaning liberal, caught in the maelstrom of his own good intentions. Tracing the fast rise and even faster downfall of college professor Arthur Kellogg, the play follows the publication of his first book, a scathing satire of the religious right. When the novel "accidentally" gets published as non-fiction, it spins out of his control and is embraced as a manifesto by the far right and militia groups -- turning Arthur into the poster boy for all he once sought to fight. Before Arthur has a chance to fix the book's misrepresentation, he winds up interviewed by Sixty Minutes, abandoned by his wife, and ultimately blackmailed into giving the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention, live, with unanticipated results...
|"A gem, the kind of play that gets better with each viewing and one which should not be missed... Pachino's play casts a wide net, touching on issues of identity, celebrity, gender, race, politics, spin doctoring, media and language itself. Part comedy, part thriller, part political critique, Morality is intellectually engaging and riveting."
