BTP Fall Festival - Show #3 - "Haunted by God: The Life of Dorothy Day"
Haunted by God is a one-woman play about Dorothy Day, co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement. Hailed in Sojourners magazine as a "wonderfully uplifting theater experience" this dramatic portrait tells the story of the woman the New York Times eulogized as a nonviolent social radical of luminous personality.

Dorothy Day (1897-1980) was a powerful woman of immense conviction who found herself jailed many times when witnessing her beliefs, including womens suffrage. In New York in 1933, she and a French-born itinerant philosopher Peter Maurin co-founded the Catholic Worker, a living movement that has been responsible for feeding and housing the homeless while maintaining a monthly, nationally-read newspaper.  Today, there are over 100 Catholic Worker houses in the United States and around the world, including communities in Toronto and Oxford, England.

Haunted by God was written by Paul Amandes, Lisa Wagner-Carollo (who also portrays Day) and Robert McClory. Directed by Virginia Smith, with costume and set design by Daniel Ostling, this acclaimed production has been touring the U.S. since May 1990 and toured Europe in February and March of 1994. The play was also performed at the Pax*Christi International Conference in Assisi, Italy in May of 1995.

Jack Helbig of New City proclaimed Haunted by God a charming and compelling warts-and-all portrait, adding that Wagners performance is so riveting-she plays, with equal ease, Day as a young Greenwich Village bohemian, as middle-aged radical, and as an elderly wise leader-that even those not entirely sympathetic with Days sadly unfashionable views on U.S. imperialism and feeding the poor will be moved.
