From the “No Shame: New Playwrights Series”, Donkey tells the story of Steve Ryan who owns an independent coffee shop in a liberal-arts-college town in upstate, New York. His “regulars” include the local newspaper reporter, an undergrad who works for (and sleeps with) him, a Goth kid who hears the call for the military, a performance artist, and a third-party mayor. He ignores the writing on the wall when the third party mayor paves the way for Quick Java, a “corporate coffee” shop, to move into the center of town. Slowly but surely, Steve alienates his regulars. Left with nothing else to do, Steve vandalizes Quick Java on the eve of its opening….with bizarre results. A satire of small-town politics, Donkey reminds us that for every decision we fail to make, there is another decision…waiting to not be made.
