Jay (Aaron Henze) used to be a Satyr; he partied with Dionysus, but now he exists merely as the God of Small Pleasures. He discovers that he is about to be de-Deified and is desperate to prevent it. His friends Sage (Courtney Peacock), a former Vestal virgin, and Nelson (Robert Webster Jr.), God of Functional Anxiety, try to help advise him on how to prevent his fate.

Devin (Trick Blanchfield), the demonic “Competition,” offers to help him out but Jay decides to try to become a member of another team.

Jay begs Inanna (Leslie Root), Goddess of Love and Justice, to allow him to join her team. She gives him a test to decide. He must make a couple (Allison Reddick and Ryan Reddick) fall in love without the help of her team, Chemistry (Case Jacobus), Shared Interests (Webster) and Timing (Marie McNelis).

Will Jay succeed, or will he lose his powers – and maybe even his horns? Come see this delightful show by Mary Karty at the IndyFringe Theatre and find out. You will truly feel blessed by its sweet sincerity and charm.
