Prodigal Son

November 1 @ 7:30 pm - November 12 @ 5:00 pm

As his conservative Catholic father is dying, Peter is shaken by religious epiphanies. It’s 1995, and Quebec is on the verge of a referendum to decide its fate in Canada as Peter realizes he must return to the family home to reconnect with his father, and overcome the differences that left them estranged. This beautiful story with original music captures the innocence of child-like faith and the pain of its loss. The play explores the deep need for reconciliation, the honesty that makes it possible, and the inner and interpersonal tensions between faith and sexuality. While fiction, the story is based on the playwright’s own experiences and spiritual struggle as a gay man who grew up in the Catholic tradition.
