Father of Fortune

By Wm. Patrick Barlow

Similar in tone to Our Town, the play concerns the impact of the murder of a well-known and powerful priest on the people in a small Wisconsin community. Through intrigue, mystery and moral questioning, the play seeks to answer "Why would someone kill a priest?"

The MATC production will be directed by Mary Ellen Graf and produced by the playwright, Wm. Patrick Barlow, with stage management by Chris Lechner and lighting design by Corey Helser.
