DUCK HUNTER SHOOTS ANGEL is the uproarious story of two bumbling Alabama brothers who have never shot a duck but think they shot an angel. As they lament their fates in a murky swamp, they are chased by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer, who don't believe any of it—until feathers, wings and a tiara are discovered along the way. The play hysterically interweaves a love story, sibling rivalry, tawdry media, race relations and cultural stereotypes as the chase to find the angel builds to a crescendo in the swamp. Ultimately a sweet allegory about redemption, DUCK HUNTER SHOOTS ANGEL has been hailed by audiences as a rare comedy with a surprisingly heartfelt lesson.

Lenny (Photographer for Tabloid - African American Male (flexible casting possible) - Lenny (short for Leonard) is a photographer for the Weekly World and Globe who is a world-weary professional, and a veteran of the tabloid trade. The male Lenny is a wise-cracking realist who has worked his way out of the south and has no patience for their racial or political attitudes. He has attitude, a political savvy, and likes Sandy, but calls him on his crap. May or may not have a slight southern accent, but it’s been blurred by years in New York. Loves donuts!
