A Full-length Drama in Two Acts

Approximate Playing time:  2 hours

Divisive inner and outer turmoil and scandals in the Catholic Church tear to the heart of the Shields family in this intensely driven drama by Sean David Bennett.  During what should have been a festive birthday celebration, the family fabric frays under the strain of mother Molly’s fear of breast cancer, daughter-in-law Sarah and Thomas Shields’ never-ending battle over what it means to be a true Irishman and eldest son, Bud’s struggle for recognition in a family bearing two priests.  But when Fr. Stephen is falsely accused of molesting a boy, the ultimate danger of collapse threatens to destroy the house and everyone in it and sets a course for vindication at the greatest price a man can pay for truth when lost in despair.  This is family drama at its best, examining commitment, love, faith, truth and honor amidst a highly controversial period in the Catholic Church. This is a play your audience will remember and men of the cloth must never forget.  $20 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
