A young trickster learns to battle the neighborhood bully with magic and misdirection. He soon discovers that every miracle has its price. Fooling Buddha is a memory play set in working class 1970’s Milwaukee. The author portrays multiple oddball characters ranging from the taunting nemesis Eddie to The Amazing Bondini, an unsuspecting philosopher who runs the local magic shop. Throughout this evening of myth, mystery and infinite jest, we encounter an assortment of homegrown eccentrics and ride orbits of cosmic conversation around the family dinner table.
As the story unfolds, so does the set. The final meditation scene concludes with an awakening that all words are magic words – not so much because they make something out of nothing, but because they make something out of everything.
