Duck Hunter Shoots Angel

Duck Hunter Shoots Angel $13

Mitch Albom

Published by Dramatists Play Service

7 Male 2 Female

The uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel

As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don't believe any of it - until feathers, wings and a tiara are discovered along the way!

The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp

Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel has been hailed by audiences as a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson

"... the comedy moves seamlessly between different times and settings, in part, because of clever (and cinematic) dialogue ... high-energy scenes involving knock-out fights and funny wordplay" ~ Oakland Press
