The previously announced Off-Broadway production of An Almost Holy Picture, with How I Learned to Drive's Obie, Drama Desk, Outer Critics' Circle and Lucille Lortel Award-winning actor David Morse and direction by Tony-winner Michael Mayer (Side Man, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown), has been postponed due to lack of theatre, according to a press spokesperson at Shirley Hertz Associates. No further dates have been announced as a theatre search continues. The play was originally scheduled for Oct. 5 previews with an opening to follow Oct. 14. Morse will perform the role of Samuel Gentle, the former priest, now church groundskeeper, whose faith is shaped by: a voice he heard as a child; a horrible schoolbus accident that leads to his renunciation of the ministry; and coping with his daughter's rare endocrine disease. He previously played the role at San Diego's La Jolla Playhouse and New Jersey's McCarter Theatre under Mayer's direction.

The Los Angeles Times named An Almost Holy Picture the best new play of 1995. Other works by McDonald include Faulkner's Bicycle, Dream of a Common Language, The Rivers and Ravines and Available Light.

Roy Gabay, Karalee Dawn and Matt Williams are announced to produce the show Off-Broadway.
