100 Saints You Should Know centers on a conflicted priest, Father McNally, who leaves his congregation to do some soul-searching at home while staying with his "uncomprehending" mother, Colleen.
This award-winning drama intriguingly extends to the strife between a cleaning lady,Theresa, and her difficult 16-year-old daughter, Abby, as well as Colleen's grocery delivery boy, Garrett, who is grappling with his own sexuality. Each character in the play seeks both spiritual and earthly bonds, or as Theresa says at one point in the show, "A surge of the heart, a cry of recognition and love."
The well-versed cast includes Paul Zeller as Father McNally, and features the mother/daughter team of Beth and Hannah Painter playing Theresa and her daughter Abby. Dreamcatcher Repertory veteran Noreen Farley plays Colleen. Rounding out the cast is Aaron Black as Garrett.
