Carnegie Vanguard High School’s one act play had a little something for everyone: depictions of male-on-male rape, male-on-female rape, filthy language, on-stage urination, and an actress who simulated wiping her private parts at center stage.
Oh yes, there was also a scene where a male cast member turned his back to the audience and dropped his pants, as fellow cast members deliver dialogue about the size of his appendage.
The Houston high school’s racy production of “Holy Day” has generated great angst among the good church-going people of the Lone Star State.
“Hello Dolly” it is not.
A Houston Chronicle columnist described the show as “psychologically intense, an exploration of subjects such as violence, sex and race.”
