Halfmoon Rising

Daniel, a middle-aged Episcopal priest, has lived a lie since his early years in seminary. Engaged to be married in his twenties, he impregnates a secret lover and then deserts both her and the unborn son to marry his fiancée—a more suitable wife for an Episcopal priest. Now in his forties, as the play opens, Daniel looks back on his years as a successful priest and a devoted husband and father; but the abandoned, illegitimate son, now in his twenties, learns of the desertion and the deception, and threatens to expose the ugly truth that would destroy Daniel's family, his ministry, and his image as a man of God.
