Sunday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m., a dramatic reading of Sin (A Cardinal Deposed) by Michael Murphy will be presented at the Cine El Rey in McAllen.
The production is sponsored by the Protecting God's Children Committee of Call To Action- RGV, with the support of a generous donation from donors who prefer to remain anonymous. It is directed by Rachel Saldana.
The play was constructed from the depositions of Cardinal Bernard F. Law, archbishop of Boston, in two civil suits involving priests of the diocese accused of child molestation. Additional material came from internal church documents that entered the legal proceedings. All of these materials are now a matter of public record.
Veteran actor Dr. Thomas Pearson plays the part of Cardinal Law, while a small group of other actors, using some costume changes, play the 26 other characters in this enthralling theatre piece.
Admission to the production is free. Guests will have the opportunity to make a free will donation after the performance, if they care to do so.
Cine El Rey is located at 311 S. 17th Street in downtown McAllen.
