A side from Simon Gray, few dramatists have lately taken an axe to academia. But Steve Waters's After The Gods is a refreshingly bilious satire on the dehumanising aspects of the humanities; and, even if it goes a bit soft in the second act, it is written with accuracy and wit. Behind the play lurks the spectre of Louis Althusser: the Marxist philosopher committed to a mental hospital in after strangling his wife.
But "Temple" by UK playwright Steve Waters is actually about Occupy London, where protesters camped for weeks at St Paul's Cathedral, closing it and creating a crisis of conscience or lack of conscience, perhaps for the Anglican Church. Paul Whitworth is Dean of the church, as besieged as the building itself, coming to work every day and reciting prayers to an empty room before retreating to his office, a gorgeous Richard Olmsted set that communicates both the gravity of the position and its isolation. Even his cell phone is years out of date nice touchand while society comes apart beneath his window daily, he's mostly concerned with his next sermon.

After Tribbett re-posted the remarks on his Facebook page, Waters defended himself. After providing one more link about anal cancer — which, again, did not mention diapers — Waters gave up trying to convince the commenters of his theory. Natural law buddies, have a good one.
Sign in. Growing up in Baltimore in the s, John Waters was not like other children; he was obsessed by violence and gore, both real and on the screen. With his weird counter-culture friends as his cast, he began making silent 8mm and 16mm films in the mid-'60s; he screened these in rented Baltimore church halls to underground audiences drawn by word of mouth and street leafleting campaigns.
Maryland's state prosecutor charged two Republican strategists Thursday with distributing an illegal robocall that many considered an attempt to smear an openly gay local candidate in Prosecutor Emmet Davitt announced charges against Dennis Fusaro, a national Republican figure best known for leaking internal emails and phone calls from Ron Paul's presidential campaign, and Stephen Waters, a Republican political consultant based in Virginia. The alleged election law violations stem from a robocall that went to about 5, Anne Arundel County residents the weekend before the election, congratulating Democratic County Council candidate Patrick Armstrong "for his bravery in coming out of the closet" and linking him to a controversial measure that banned discrimination against transgender people in public areas, including restrooms. The recording gave the home phone number of Armstrong's mother and invited residents to call about Armstrong's support of "the bathroom bill.
