United Solo Fest Presents LOSING MY RELIGION... 10/22
Losing My Religion: Confessions of a New Age Refugee, a hysterical romp through America's spiritual enterprise, exposes the blurry line between self-help and faith. Yoga gurus, healthy chocolate peddlers and Buddhists with God complexes ego-trip their way toward absurdity. Do these people really exist? Yes... they do.
Based on his own spiritual journey, which saw him leave the Catholic Church and meander through Buddhism and a host of other isms, the monologue juxtaposes wickedly funny and insightful characterizations with thoughtful commentary on his own spiritual seeking.
Lepore uses his fecund imagination to take a humorous and sincere look at the pitfalls and biases that make up the melting pot of spiritual choices. The intention of the piece is to create an ongoing dialogue that presents more questions than answers in terms of how we approach faith as a culture.
