Set in late-1950's Los Angeles, the Easter Bunny Conspiracy is a
grippingly funny coming-of-age tale told from the point of view of
a precocious 12 year-old Catholic boy, Chris Kelly. Chris is
struggling to find himself despite the burdens of his being as
overweight as he is obsessed with and equally confused by girls,
being as agnostic as he is Catholic, and as unsure as he is
(almost) poised about coping with all the crazy but accepted
traditions, customs, prejudices, contradictions and hypocrisies
with which he's confronted each day.
Chris' problem is that he hasn't yet figured out that he's right
to be confused about everyone around him so readily accepting being
grounded in one way or another on deceits such as what Chris calls
"that Easter Bunny thing." Chris' needs are simple - just to make
his way in the world.
Aided by flashbacks on his own experiences, Chris' story is
about his overcoming the fiery crucible of the 3 days before his
Confirmation, which enable him to reach his personal epiphany and
stride with semi-confidence into his still-uncertain future with an
ethically tolerable plan. Our voyage through these stormy
adolescent seas is at once poignant and hilarious. It's bittersweet
comedy at its best. You can't help but love it.
