A conversation about the birds and the bees creates a school scandal. The Human Race Theatre Company presents Incident at Our Lady of Perpetual Help at The Loft Theatre in downtown Dayton.
A money-strapped family tries to cope in 1973. 19 year-old Linda O’Shea is our narrator and she is attempting to re-enact the most turbulent day of her life, but her family keeps interrupting to tell their side of the story. The 70’s were a time of old school living; no social media, and public ridicule in a close-knit community was the ultimate nightmare. When her parents ask her to explain to her younger sister about the birds and the bees, somehow the blunt explanation is overheard by the parish priest and he is not amused. When he confronts her parents about the “corruption of their eldest daughter’s very soul,” all holy hell and hysteria break loose in this nostalgic comedy.
