Description

Kile is a mentally ill grown man who lives in his small Midwestern apartment with his elderly, religious, stern mother.   His days are spent in a dreary and abusive routine until a mysterious and exciting stranger, Nancy, moves in next door.  What happens when Kile discovers Nancy is a dominatrix? Joe Keyes’ new play Big Baby keeps you laughing in the face of discomfort.  It is a domestically abusive dramedy about people trying to find companionship and love.

Big Baby is a searing attempt for Keyes to deal with most of his core issues  including, his Mother, Catholicism, sex, shame, guilt, fear, materialism, gluttony, spirituality, sadomasochistic impulses and an odd addiction to baloney.  Funny, frightening, brutal and sad, it is above all else an attempt for Keyes to try to understand God … with a lot of laughs.
