I just found out that Paul Ben-Victor is part of a staged reading of Sin, a Cardinal Deposed. This is a play that apparently started March 5, but according to the theatre website has three more showings. The thing that’s tricky about this reading is that it has an alternating cast and I couldn’t find any cast information about upcoming shows, so you take your chances as to whether Paul is actually performing the night you attend.
In Suffolk Superior Court, lawyer Orson Krieger treads a fine line between respect and contempt.
He relentlessly pursues answers from the elusive Cardinal Bernard Law, the Archbishop of Boston, for his failure to protect the victims of sexual abuse at the hands of priests in his archdiocese.
Every question, every answer, every word of this play was taken from two hearings and one trial.
All the characters are real.
A review of the staged reading can be found at Blog Critics Magazine.
The reading is held every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. at the Hayworth Theatre, and runs from Thursday, March 26, to Thursday, April 9. Tickets are normally $20, but this week’s performance is a special benefit for SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) and the ticket price is $50.
