New York City
The Tricky Part is the story of a boy who was forced to grow up too quickly—and the man he became, whose journey to forgiveness takes him to the heart of a paradox: what we think of as damage may be the very thing that gives rise to transformation, even grace. The Tricky Part tells the true story of the sexual relationship Moran had with an older man, a counselor he met at a Catholic boys’ camp, between the ages of 12 and 15. Now an established New York actor (Monty Python’s Spamalot, Floyd Collins), Moran won an Obie Award and two Drama Desk nominations, including one for Best Play, for the original 2004 production of The Tricky Part. His memoir of the same title (published by Random House, Anchor Books) won numerous honors including a Barnes & Noble Discover Prize and a Lambda Literary Award.
