The Catamite

A play by Ben Parkhill

After the death of his father and the end of a clandestine relationship, working-class Paul Scrope focuses on managing his family’s small Wisconsin farm with his troubled mother, Laura. But when Ellis McHenry, one of Paul’s teammates on the high school cross country team, applies for the scholarship on which Paul pinned his future, fears creep in that Ellis is trying to destroy his already unstable life. As Paul’s suspicions grow, an unusual spiritual movement suddenly decides to make him a figurehead for their cause, forcing every corner of Paul’s carefully compartmentalized world to collide.
