About the Play

    "Two Dead Clowns” is a 2-part play. Part 1 is about the life of serial killer, John Wayne Gacy Jr. and  part 2 is about the life of the actor, Divine.

     John Wayne Gacy Jr. was executed after being sentenced to death for killing at least 33 people. He buried many of his victims under his house. He also liked to dress up as a clown and perform for children. He was a very complicated man and the play examines his life as well as the lives of his family members and his victims.

     Divine was also a killer but only on screen. Most of his fame derived from his starring roles in John Water's films as well as his recording career and nightclub appearances. “Two Dead Clowns” focuses on the last weekend of his life as he was preparing to shoot an episode of “Married With Children” in Los Angeles. He was to play Uncle Otto and, unlike most of his roles with John Waters, he would not be performing in drag. He died the night before the taping.
