Paul M. Kelly's trilogy of one-act plays, Night Prattle, engages the reader through the witty and elegant repartee of his characters. Their voices etch an indelible portrait of a world where ambitions, obsessions, excesses, and commI'ments are realized, and where friendship remains a source of comfort and frustration. Tying the ensemble together are the choice reminiscences flowing from the fast-paced dialogue. Whether it be a one-night fling as a hustler in Delicious Thing, a look at parochial school educators in Brides of God, or the misadventures of a middle-aged man in Feasting With Panthe's, Kelly cleverly reveals to his audience a unique glimpse into the alternative lifestyles of his characters. Night Prattle unveils a cavalcade of private moments from six individuals living and working in Manhattan. The motivations of the characters are fueled by their salient views on how to achieve their desires. Throughout the collection, a distinct depth, breadth and richness emerges from the gay themes, rising to universal heights of individuality and contemporary survival.
