Our 2018/19 season begins with Martin Moran’s OBIE Award-winning solo masterpiece (Two Drama Desk nominations, including Best Play), directed by Seth Barrish. The Tricky Part is one of the most heralded one-man plays in recent memory, and has been produced and performed all over the world—throughout the United States, Canada, South Africa and India. Here’s a rare opportunity for those who missed it the first time to experience this extraordinary, often funny, and always surprising journey through the complexities of Catholicism, desire and human trespass.
