SumiSami

By Ray Werner
Directed by John Amplas
November 9th through 17th 2018
Part of the Ray Werner Play Festival
At Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre

The love of Capuchin missionary Father Paddy for his people in Papua New Guinea, and fellow Capuchin Father Tom’s struggle with his priesthood, intersect on the day of its independence in 1975. The Huli folktale of SumiSami fuels this battle of cultures and drives a stake into the heart of celibacy. A world premiere drama from Pittsburgh’s own Ray Werner.
