Duck Hunter Shoots Angel

I was asked in the comments for this, so I thought I would post it here, in case anyone else is curious! This is the show I'm stage managing right now and it is an absolute RIOT! The actors are amazing and the script is hysterical. The Theatre 98 audience won't know what hit them!

Duck Hunter Shoots Angel
A rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson. Duck Hunter Shoots Angel is 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, written by the best-selling author of Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet In Heaven and For One More Day.

    Sounds hilarious. What a plot two brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel? How could you go wrong?
