Jeffrey Hartgraves' hilarious theatre hit is finally in print!
"Carved in Stone is a thinking person's play, a comedy that will exercise a brain cell or two while giving you belly laughs"
Richard Clausner, WeHo News
"More bitchy gay wit and sophisticated repartee than a Noel Coward festival capped off with a screening of All About Eve"
Les Spindle, Frontiers
Gay literati Truman Capote, Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams & Quentin Crisp are spending eternity together, drinking & bickering in an afterlife lounge, when they’re unexpectedly joined by Gryphon Tott – a young, newly deceased writer whose first & only book was published posthumously.
In death, Tott’s sexy novel turned him into an LGBT literary sensation. There’s just one catch: Gryphon Tott is not gay!
So why does the world think he is? Why did fate send Gryphon to spend eternity here? And does he have any chance of setting the record “straight” from the great hereafter?
Throw in cameos by William Shakespeare, Gertrude Stein & Alice Toklas, Bette Davis & Judy Garland, for a show as hilarious as it is thought-provoking.
With a foreword by director John Fisher, a postscript by "Quentin Crisp" actor Leon Acord, and photos from the show's 2002 San Francisco and 2009 Los Angeles productions!
"The show is hilarious ... packed with witticisms that are downright lapidary"
Michael Scott Moore, SF Weekly
Adam Sandel, San Francisco Examiner
