Final Script

3/3 of my catch-up... This is the "final" script for Catamitus, after having worked with the director and actors in rehearsals, and having made some decisions of my own.  I made several cuts, and added a bit.  I also redistributed some text from Ben to some other actors.  And there are new stage directions- and film portions.  What do you think of this version?  If you had to cut any more lines, which would they be?

I also deleted my old posts on this site, because if you googled "Catamitus Love Slave to God" they'd pop up!  And you can still see it through Google cache... but I thought I would at least try to make the script less accessible/spoilery.  So anyhow, this is the only place you can read it now.

Instead of posting the whole thing, here is a link:  http://catamitusloveslavetogod.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/the-script/

The password is "lingham".


  1. The flow of this new version is much improved. I like the new lines for the chorus members, and the film segments should look good and help simplify some of the live staging.

  2. I've been waiting for something like this so I can comment on the whole play, but what I said about the other scenes still applies: interesting ideas, loved Choregus, etc. I didn't get to comment on Scene 4 beforehand, and I nailed down the reason why: it was a struggle for me to read. Maybe it was just too metaphysical for my taste, but I quickly lost interest after it started and became confused by what was and wasn't going on to remain invested. Maybe that's what you're going for, but to me is was too far in a certain direction.
