Seth Barrish once again directs the work which will open at the Washington stage July 20.
The Tricky Part humorously and candidly delves into the life of its star and his personal journey. The work deals with the consequences of a 12-year-old altar boy's introduction to sex. The work earned a special citation at the 2004 Obie Awards.
Martin has appeared on Broadway in the revival of Bells Are Ringing, Cabaret, Titanic, How to Succeed In Business..., Big River and Oliver! Other credits include A Man of No Importance, The Cider House Rules, Doonesbury, Floyd Collins and The Making of Americans.
The play was published in January by Dramatists Play Service. The memoir version, "The Tricky Part: One Boy's Fall from Trespass into Grace," is also available through publisher Beacon Press.
Developed at Utah's Sundance Institute Theatre Lab, Connecticut's Long Wharf Theatre and New Jersey's McCarter Theatre, the work had its initial workshop at The Barrow Group. The creative team for The Tricky Part at the Intiman includes Paul Steinberg (scenic) and Russell H. Champa (lighting). The stage manager is J.R. Welden.
Moran will sign copies of his book and participate in discussions at Intiman Theatre on the following dates: Spotlight Supper, a behind-the-scenes look at a technical rehearsal, on Wednesday, July 13 at 6 pm, and post-play discussions on July 22, 23 (matinee), 26 and Aug. 4. All post-show discussions are free with a ticket stub to any performance of The Tricky Part.
