A rap drama in two acts, based on the lives of two couples whose lives have been affected by the crash in the economy taking place all over the world and continuing into the present day. These people, David, Joan, Harry and Sara all had good jobs and great lives and lost them suddenly one day when the economy crashed.
Forced to look at their harsh situations, they draw on the memories and the experiences of their lives and those of their families and friends past and present in order to be able to take ‘the next step’ in life, whatever the consequences.

This play is ideal for an arts festival, especially the fringe section of an arts festival as it requires a minimal set and can thus be put on anywhere. It’s message will hold true for many communities who have been hit by the crash in the world’s economy.

This is the second play we are publishing by Jack Moskovitz.Read about Jack in our about the authors section. Read The Devil Dances, a sexual drama in one act.

Boise, USA – play about homophobia

play about homophobia

PLAYS loved by our editor


“Boise, USA,” is an historical drama based on the homosexuality scandal that took place in the fifties in Boise, Idaho and follows the lives of people both accused of homosexuality as well as those whose jobs it was to arrest and convict them. A play about homophobia, as it was 60 years ago, but just as relevant as it is today.


The Boise homosexuality scandal refers to a sweeping investigation of a supposed “homosexual underground” in Boise, Idaho that started in 1955. Beginning with the arrest of three men in October 1955, the investigation broadened to encompass allegations that over 100 young men and teenage boys had been involved in sexual acts with a ring of adult homosexual men. By the time the investigation wound down in January 1957, some 1,500 people had been questioned, sixteen men faced charges, and fifteen of them were sentenced to terms ranging from probation to life in prison.”
