In this compelling play for one actor, Martin Moran tells the story of his complicated childhood relationship with a lapsed seminarian. Told with great humor and unflinching honesty, this tour-de-force piece tackles a challenging and timely story with grace and nuance.

The play will be published in January by Dramatists Play Service. The memoir version, "The Tricky Part: One Boy's Fall from Trespass into Grace," is slated to be published next summer by Beacon Press.
