What happens to three closeted gay Catholic priests when their bishop demands that all his priests read a letter from the pulpit ordering Catholics to vote against same-sex marriage? One of the priests, Father Ed, publicly objects to the bishop's demand. This changes his friendship with the other two and leads to a frightening confrontation with the bishop. The answer to the question "Will he or won't he read the anti-gay letter?" is revealed in the final scene. Written by a gay Catholic priest, A Letter From The Bishop is a look into the secret lives of closeted gay American Catholic priests who are forced by their bishops to make anti-gay political statements from their pulpits. This play will help you understand how gay priests succeed or fail to reconcile their private lives with the laws of their church.
