bless me, father
Bless Me, Father was
commissioned to be part of
Unresolved, an evening of
one-act plays commemorating
the anniversary of 9/11. The
other playwrights involved
included Joe Pintauro, Romulus
Linney and Steve Fechter.
"The absolute high point of the evening, however
is Jeff Baron's Bless Me, Father, about a
fireman's widow confessing to a sympathetic
priest. Her story of a deteriorating relationship
with a man who was decidedly not a hero in his
private life is the evening's most human moment."
