ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT:
ISABELLA IDES is (to quote a reviewer) "an equal-opportunity paradigm demolition expert...but it's in the reconstruction that her story wins our hearts."
Raised under the Hollywood sign and educated by Hollywood nuns in a school that still stands on Hollywood Boulevard smack dab in the middle of Babylon, the fledgling writer and redactor thrived at this crossroads of the sacred and the profane. At first Isabella was horrified to learn that the god on offer, by the good Sisters she held in awe, was a murderer. Her young brain was riddled by the question: Why had this catechism-approved god drowned all the children when he saved Noah and a few animals? Convinced that her personal god was omnibenevolent, she took the old god out of her deck of holy cards and invented another--a Godma as beautiful as the Hollywood goddesses who romped in the seven-year-old's imagination and gloried on the silver screen.
WHITE MONKEY CHRONICLES is an invitation to enter a god-riddled world, a world like ours--not always convivial to spiritual creatives, and a world altogether unlike ours--where portals open onto celestial realms, and where the eponymous white monkey ranges free and full of divine mischief. ... from Ms. Ides Amazon Biography
