Luke Franklin's portrait of an extremely tall man an a dwarf is reminsiscent of the Southern Gothic tradition of Carson McCullers, William Faulkner, and Flannery O'Conner. It's a hoot. Though you really should read O'Connor and McCullers. They're funny too, and maybe a bit more character driven so that you get that extra literary OOMPHTH. Cast: Declan Sammon, Conn Rogers, Johan Slattery.
