Theatre - Spoken Word Drama

Harry Reade's three act play poses questions of faith in God and oneself. How can a priest have faith in goodness or his God when neither seem to come to his aid to save the innocent? When does an artist decide to risk the lack of material security for the fulfillment of his own creativity? For the writer Steele Rudd (Denis Moore) and the Irish priest Father O'Keefe (Robert Essex) to accept the values of their society and maintain a place within it, both men will have to capitulate to double standards.
