Nudity Happens
by Daphne Masque

It was a dream come true. After all these years of hoping and believing, Faith Burke finally had a career working at a professional theatre company. Well, okay, maybe career is overstating it.

Truth is, The Empire Players, weren’t exactly professional either. They would be, soon, well, probably in the next couple of years.

Plus, Managing Director was a pretty big title for her, a constant beacon in a creative storm. That might be embroidering the truth a little; this was the last show of the season and all the hard work had been done.

Still, she had to manage the director and inspire courage to lead a band of thespians into an award-winning season. Okay, maybe not courage exactly, more like pig headed stubborn.

Which defined John Cutler to the bone. He was the director of “Hair, The Musical,” and had a daredevil smile that melted her heart. He was also the man who left her twenty-eight years ago when she needed him most. Now he was back and had aged like fine wine, looking better than she could have ever imagined.

Never mind him. She had a job to do — to make sure the show opened without a hitch. Easy Peasy. That is until John Cutler played the artistic integrity card and insisted on nudity in the production. Seriously?

Next thing she knew the show was spiraling rapidly into madness, the vandals struck, the zany criminals plotted her demise, and the picketing by the Honorable League threatened to cancel the show.

The only one who could help Faith was John, the man she couldn’t trust.

Originally indie published June 2018 in trade paperback.
