Praise for The Tricky Part
“A translucent memoir of a play…shattering.” The New York Times “Powerful.” The New York Post “Surprising and moving! Startling, marvelously told.” New York Newsday “Deeply personal and exceedingly honest. It steadily builds from its unassuming beginning to an emotionally charged ending. A powerful, truthful account.” Broadway.com
A true story about 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, a counselor he met at a Catholic boys’ camp. 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. For more information please visit www.thetrickypartbook.com.

About the Show
What happens when a mild-mannered Manhattanite shows up at his father’s Las Vegas funeral and ends up in a fight with his fuming stepmother? Or when he suddenly finds himself in a room, translating the details of an asylum seeker’s torture? In his new solo work, Martin Moran takes us on a quest from West of the Rockies to South of Johannesburg, unearthing unexpected connections and human hilarities as he attempts to resolve an ancient riddle: How is it that one moment we might reach out in compassion and the next…kill?
