World Premiere of Father Tom Fitzpatrick's Play, The Gentle Whisper of Trees

Date: 12-07-2019

Time: 02:01 PM

Location: Westport Country Playhouse

The World Premiere of The Gentle Whisper of Trees, the inaugural literary work by playwright Father Thomas J. Fitzpatrick, a a member of the Fairfield University Jesuit community, will take place Saturday, December 7 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Westport Country Playhouse.

The Gentle Whisper of Trees is a passionate drama that dives deep into the issues of human sexuality, human communication and the alienation caused by the abuse of a patriarchal position. It tells the journey of an American family coming face to face with the tragic truths that lie within their souls. The catalyst for this quest lies in the formation of a rich, spiritual and quite unlikely relationship between the eldest son, Michael, a reticent and emotionless poetry professor who considers himself an atheist, and Fr. Waterbury, an elderly Jesuit priest whose deep devotion and approachable temperament invite an inspirational twist on spirituality. The exposition of how one parent's inhumane treatment of his children alters the trajectory of their lives, both internally and externally, serves as a mesmerizing theatrical experience. 

Tickets: $250 (for the 7PM performance only and includes a pre-show reception), $99, $69, and $49


A limited number of $29 student tickets are available by calling the Playhouse Box Office at 203-227-4177. Valid student ID must be shown in order to pick up tickets.
