The Philosopher: One Act Plays


Comedic, satirical, and at times solemn, The Philosopher showcases the range of human complexity from nonsense to wisdom. Murray's characters range from a philosopher in chains brought up from the basement to entertain guests to a psychologist who assists a traumatized patient to become more self-aware, only to result in greater angst. Provocative, perceptive, and rife with questions about the motives and morality of our everyday conduct, The Philosopher ultimately deals with the search for meaning and our need to believe. Murray writes, "Believe what though? Politics. Religion. Sports. It's obvious that content doesn't matter. It's just belief itself. What they fear most is not believing. No one can stand that."
