King O' the Moon

By Tom Dudzik

Directed by Herschel Kruger

Tom Dudzik's King O' the Moon is part two to Over the Tavern which was performed at Carthage College this past spring. Even though the play is a continuation of the Pazinski family and the trials that they encounter, it is not necessary for audience members to have seen Over the Tavern to enjoy and love this new play. King O' the Moon has a greater urgency and sharper realism than Over the Tavern as the family tackles grown-up issues like divorce, remarriage, war, and draft-evasion. We have jumped ahead ten years to July 1969 and the Apollo astronauts are touching down on the lunar surface. Rudy is now a seminary student complying with his father, Chet's, dying wish. However, he is still faced with questions regarding his faith and Church teachings. Older brother Eddie is now married and leaving for Vietnam and sister Annie is contemplating divorce. This play veers into sentimentality of the love for family but still keeps the audience laughing with bubbly comedy.
