Telemachus Clay, a collage for voices by Lewis John Carlino( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in English and Dutch and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Telemachus Clay is a play about a journey. It seeks to encompass in this voyage the experiences of Telemachus Clay, bastard and dreamer--as he moves through a kaleidoscope of joys and grief, seeking to touch the shadow of some distant trinity: a Godhead, his father and the salvation of his species. Eleven actors play eighty-eight characters in a sprawling, impressionistic collage of voices and sounds. The story begins in a small town and traverses a continent, to Hollywood, where Telemachus seeks to sell a story he has written that examines the painful mistakes of mankind and offers an answer to the chaos of the world. What happens to him, through his trials, despairs and frustrations, is the stuff of which the play is made. Finally, scarred and disillusioned, as he nears completion of his own myth, he meets a Prophet who tells him the solution to the ills of the world can only be found by returning to the woman he left behind and to his illegitimate son. Only there can he begin to create for himself and for them a season of the heart and of remembering in which the world can be born anew. An imaginative and compelling kind of theatre in which the actors, using only stools and simple lighting, create a striking panorama of places and people."--Publisher's description

"This is the kaleidoscopic drama of a young boy of the slums from the moment of his birth in a charity hospital, until his tragic death. In an effort to find something besides 'hardness and hitting out, and twisted people all afraid', Tommy turns to narcotics, and thus creates his own world: one in which he is not constantly gnawed by an acute awareness of the meaninglessness of what is going on around him. He meets Alice, in whom he sees his life-long search for beauty: the rose behind the hard brick city. He knows that he has only touched this beauty for an instant, and he sees it moving farther away from him. At last, in a final escape from the squalor around him, he takes an overdose of narcotics, and ends his search."--From publisher's website

"Produced by the American National Theatre and Academy. Charlie Ingersoll lives alone on the outskirts of a midwestern town. His only companions are a parakeet that refuses to talk, and Desdemona, a vintage Ford; still bright and shiny under Charlie's careful hand. Charlie refuses to grow old from loneliness. He runs an ad in the town paper offering Desdemona for sale, with the sole purpose of getting people to come out and talk to him. Sunday of each week, when the paper comes out, Charlie gets his visitors. Things take a turn for the worse, however, when Charlie suddenly finds himself confronted by the classified ad clerk of the newspaper, who has come to tell him people have been turning in complaints. He must either sell his car or the paper will cancel his ad. After he leaves Charlie feels a bitter loneliness crashing down around him. His thoughts are interrupted by the appearance of a young girl who has come to inquire about Desdemona. Charlie pulls the tarp off the car, and for the first time someone sees Desdemona just as he does; not as just a car, but as "A fine lady all fit out for a ball." The price for Desdemona is one hundred and fifty. The girl confesses she only has twenty dollars and can make payments of only two dollars a week which she promises to bring out every Sunday. Charlie's eyes twinkle. "That'll take a long time," he muses. The classified ad man returns breathlessly to tell Charlie his editor wants to use the story of his loneliness. He has even offered to let Charlie continue to run the ad free. Charlie smiles. Desdemona has been sold. And it looks as if he's not going to be needing the ad anymore."--
