Thirty Seven Stones

by Mark Charney

directed by Will Neuman

Nathan has a problem with women and sex. Edna, his Jewish mother, cannot face either his growing up or his eventually leaving home. She may hate his father and most of the men in her life, but she hates the idea of Nathan with another woman more. Doing everything in her power to keep Nathan close to her, Edna enlists the whole family, comically manipulating those around her in her quest to bind Nathan to her forever—all with heavy doses of every mother's secret weapon: Guilt. If that isn't enough to stunt Nathan's independence and sexual identity, Nathan has another painful problem. "I’ve a love/hate relationship with my dick." Turns out he has a rather daunting problem: kidney stones - 36 of them, to be exact. How is a man supposed to be a man when the most precious thing in the world to him is also the source of excruciating pain? In this hilarious, scabrous, comic memory play, past and present collide as Nathan struggles to find love, identity, independence, and a slightly less painful existence.
