Full-Length Play

The Seeker

A Serious Comedy in Two Acts                  by William Ivor Fowkes

If that's all there is, my friend, then let's keep dancing. - Peggy Lee


Tommy Hamilton is looking for God, love, and sex--but not necessarily in that order. At the moment, however, he's in a coma, reviewing his life and wondering, "Is that all there is?" Spanning 30 years of gay history, this play examines the relationship between gay men and organized religion as well as the impact of the AIDS crisis.

CAST: 4M, 2F (43 characters) 

SETTING: Tommy Hamilton's mind, with stops in Ohio, New York City, Maine, and India.

TIME: 1972-2000


THE SEEKER is based on my unpublished novel, The Nonbeliever.
