Wretch Like Me (or How I was Saved from Being Saved)
  • Edinburgh Fringe

In this outrageous, award-winning solo show, **** (Marin Independent), NEA-honoured journalist David Templeton describes his years as a teenage fundamentalist puppeteer in the 1970s. Praised for its humour, vivid impersonations, and Templeton's ability to sing Amazing Grace backwards, Wretch is a fiercely funny coming-of-age story with a hell of a twist. Openly autobiographical (with graphic descriptions of radical evangelical puppeteering and stuff about biblical masturbation), Wretch is packed with colourful characters, including the tripped-out minister Rev. Dude, and Cindy, an intense girl who once wet her pants for Jesus.
