THE LIFE AND CRIMES OF REVEREND RACCOON
THE LIFE AND CRIMES OF REVEREDN RACCOON by J J Fletcher
Raccoon is a man of many faces: conman, soldier, father, faith healer and preacher, then God found him. Now he’s escaped federal detention, is about to deliver one of his final sermons and share the divine knowledge he has acquired on his journey. He’s also going to educate his congregation (the audience) as to why, in life, they should always choose the baked potato option. The Life and Crimes of Reverend Raccoon is a one-man dark comedy, by two times Scripted finalist and award-nominated playwright Jeremy Fletcher, about why some people need to keep the faith. The play is inspired by some true events experienced by the writer when the young son of some close family friends was killed, the family turned to a spiritualist church – where they invested time, money and, subsequently, the leader of that church was discredited.
The Life and Crimes of Reverend Raccoon is directed by Marcus J Bazley, played by Gareth Watkins and written by Jeremy Fletcher. The play was developed with the support of Cast Theatre, Sheffield Theatres (part of Making Room) and Theatre Delicatessen.
