Sometimes all it takes is one voice to delineate an intricate sketch of human experience, with all of the joy, sorrow, sin and humor we encounter daily scribbled in. The Necessary Theatre’s latest piece follows one man down the road to forgiveness and grace, while looking at family and community and how that one voice may become lost. Under the direction of Necessary Theatre company member Laurene Scalf, Robert McFarland navigates Martin Moran’s one-man show through the waves of childhood, Catholicism, desire and human trespass. According to Scalf, the play, winner of a 2004 Obie Award, “illustrates how complicated trespass can be — for the sinner and for the sinned against — and how grace can assert itself despite us.” —Jane Mattingly
