The Holy Fool the issues are mental and spiritual. I am
struggling to transcend my personal history, the twin tyrannies
of biology and environment which threaten me ceaselessly with
death and judgment.
But in The Lunar Project I'm looking for love and the essence
of romance. The issues are emotional. They involve affairs of
the heart, they reside in the soul.
Using the demanding form of the extended monologue — a "Stage-tale,"
as I like to call it — I am attempting to recreate through
performance what are originally alternative spiritual experiences,
independent of any particular religion and unique to my own background
and imagination. Maybe I'm nuts for trying such a thing. But the
truth is, after forty years of searching for these answers, I
need to share my findings.
