The full-length version of the 40th Annual Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival winner, The Gulf.
"Cefaly, who has an ear fror the cadence of the region...is invested with an assured, soulful intimacy... How refreshing to encounter a play that does not feel it has to document its sexual politics or suggest that the family's or community's reaction, in a part of the country not renowned for tolerance, is what drives a decisive wedge between the characters."The Washington Post
"...a scorching two-hander character study... The Gulf richly traffics in both silence and the abundent pent-up forces of two people past the first passions of love."DC Metro Theater Arts
"As funny as it is powerful, as tender as it is passionate, The Gulf reveals a pair of volatile lovers whose relationship is as sharp as a fishing knife -- pointed and dangerous."Broadway World
Gulf, The (Full-Length) Script
This is optional.
The divide between Kendra and Betty mimics the very world that devours them: a vast and polarizing abyss. On a quiet summer evening, somewhere down in the Alabama Delta, Kendra and Betty troll the flats looking for red fish. After Betty begins diagnosing Kendra's dead-end life with career picks from What Color is Your Parachute, their routine fishing excursion takes a violent turn.
