Synopsis

Purple Heart & The Infidel - Two Plays

Purple Heart & The Infidel - Two Plays $15.99

Bruce Norris

Published by Northwestern Publishing

In Purple Heart, Carla, a Vietnam War widow deep in drink and depression, is living with a troubled son and her controlling mother

One day a stranger arrives at the door, a soldier with one hand who is seemingly connected to her late husband and comes to offer condolences to the grieving family

The soldier's mysterious visit is solved in graphic and bloody detail at the end of the play. Norris uses these quirky and flawed characters to provide a humorous yet very dark view of war and the human condition

Loosely based on a true story, The Infidel tells of a charismatic and well-respected state Supreme Court justice who is faced with disciplinary action after his out-of-control affair with a young Latina junior staffer

He confers with his friend and attorney as he examines the consequences of his behavior and tries to judge the most difficult case of his life-his own

With dark irony and sharp, cutting dialogue, Bruce Norris explores sexual obsession and the legislation of human behavior
