Three one-act plays by John B. Keane linked by the theme of values:

“The Spraying of John Darcy” – a not so funny satire of environmentalists set in the future when humans are put to death for damaging the environment. The message, environmentalists think human life is less-important than plants and animals. Weak.

“Backwater” – a man returns to his hometown to visit his mother after many years neglect. He brings two friends from London. The older one falls in love with the mother and chooses to stay. The values here are appreciating your family and home, which is sometimes easier for outsiders.

“The Pure of Heart” – this is the one I bought the book for since Pa performed in this play. Two men meet on the roadside one coming from an extramarital encounter, the other proclaiming it to be a sin. The first man tries to cajole the second into visiting another married woman for amorous shenanigans. When a tramp overhears this and tries to visit the woman they kill him. The value questioned here is why infidelity is thought more sinful than murder. ( )
