The Bigot - A Dark Comedy Reviews

Archie Bunker 2.0! Very Funny!
NY Daily News
Stephen Payne is spectacular! In a role that could very easily be played very one note, he brought depth, There is a glimmer of hope in this play, that makes us think maybe if we can’t completely change someone, we can at least make a little dent.
On Stage Blog
The Bigot by Gabi and Eva Mor is a charming contemporary dark comedy, solidly constructed with its Norman Lear-style comedic sensibility that enriches their well-drawn characters. The Bigot’s mouthpiece is the splendid Stephen Payne who is able to make the most corrosive statements sound funny while expressing emotion. His vivid characterization emits humanity, making the crusty Jim much more than just an ogre. By the end of the play, the role has accumulated the impact of an Arthur Miller-type figure. The Bigot is really an entertaining old-fashioned well-made play with an edge!
Theater Scene

Summary

Acclaimed Broadway actor Stephen Payne (Broadway: Straight White Men, Of Mice and Men, Superior Donuts, August: Osage County) stars as the titular racist, chauvinist, and homophobe. Eager to, but unsuccessful in convincing his liberal-minded son Seth to convert to his skewed belief system, The Bigot stews in his own anger. His intolerant viewpoints are complicated further when two lesbians move next door, eventually leading to the shock of his life.
