Brother Augustine III of the Covenant of Christs Flesh was once blessed with a vision of the true Heaven. To everyones horror, it included no allusions to the classical depictions of Gods Kingdom not a single chaste angel floated about and no eternal weight of saintly glory rested upon ones shoulders. Instead, there were boys (straight boys, to make it clear) passing around beer bongs, slapping each others asses, and shouting Go, team! Brother Augustine was excommunicated and, immediately thereafter, committed suicide.
Behold, though, Brother Gus spirit has returned in the form of playwright/director Guillermo Reyes, whose new play, Straight Boys Gone Wild, is about crazy heterosexual dudes engaging in a night of heavy drinking and obscenities.
