Fall Play - Figments


Blessed Trinity Theatrical Alliance presents "Figments" by Billy St. John


Rick Jacobs is a playwright with a wild imagination—perhaps too wild! As he attempts to overcome a massive case of writer's block, the audience sees four figments of his imagination play out the opening scene of his next murder mystery. He—and they—are interrupted by the arrival of his neighbor, Loni, with whom Rick is secretly, and helplessly, in love. The source of Rick's trouble with women, his domineering mother, arrives on the scene (along with her imagined double) carrying a burial urn with Mr. Jacobs' ashes inside. Pop pops in and out of Rick's thoughts (wearing a lifesize urn) to comment on his life with Mama and on the hereafter. Even the image of Rick's former ladylove, Sarah, comes around to encourage him to cut the old apron strings. As Rick's thoughts bounce between his frustrating love life and his play, the real people and the figments of Rick's imagination clash riotously with the fictional characters in his play. If you've ever wondered what goes through a playwright's mind, this farcical comedy reveals all—hilariously.
