Father Tim Farley is highly popular with his parishioners due to his charm, wit, easy-going manner, and entertaining (but unchallenging) sermons. One Sunday, seminarian Mark Dolson interrupts Farley’s sermon to challenge his stance on the ordination of women. The pastor is outraged and intrigued by the young man, and asks to have him assigned to work with him.
Dolson is a firebrand eager to change the Church and feels it’s his job to shake parishioners out of their complacency. Farley likes Dolson, but sees that he’ll never succeed as a priest if all he does is irritate people and make enemies. Each man has something to teach the other about how to perform his priestly duties.
Previous productions have won both Tony Awards and Theatre World Awards.
