My Tidy List of Terrors
A coming of age tale set against the backdrop of the Atlanta Child Murders of 1980. Ishmael Johnson was taught in church that all your sins fall on you at the age of twelve. When tragedy hits, Ishmael begins to view his immortality differently. In a journey of self-discovery, Ishmael and his mother navigate the troubled waters of physically and spiritually maturing from a boy to a man.
“Norton writes the play like a game of solitaire leisurely combining the characters...the result is a pretzel of plotlines peppered with some powerful scenes.” – TheaterJones
“My Tidy List of Terrors” is presented in agreement with Norton Script Works, and was first presented at South Dallas Cultural Center in 2012.
