THE TRICKY PART, by Martin Moran
"A translucent memoir of a play...shattering." NY Times.
"Powerful." NY Post.
"Surprising and moving! Startling, marvelously told." NY Newsday.
"Deeply personal and exceedingly honest. It steadily builds from its unassuming beginning to an emotionally charged ending. A powerful, truthful account." Broadway.com.
"An emotionally honest play about sexuality and reconciliation." Associated Press.
"THE TRICKY PART is the most powerful play of the season." Next Magazine.
A true story of sexuality, spirituality and the mystery of human experience, THE TRICKY PART is one of the most heralded one-man plays in recent memory. Between the ages of 12 and 15, the author had a sexual relationship with an older man. Now 42 and an established New York actor, he has transformed his story into a riveting, often funny and always surprising journey through the complexities of Catholicism, desire and human trespass. The New York premiere received a 2004 Obie award and two Drama Desk nominations including Outstanding Play.
