Created & Performed by Martin Dockery

-A solo show in 75 minutes-

Wrestling with monogamy and infidelity, Dockery comically travels through the land of the uber-faithful - from a religious theme park in Orlando to Christmas Day in Bethlehem - ineptly in pursuit of something, anything, to believe in. Performed in Dockery's energetic style, this is a funny, moving, and ultimately uplifting true story about desperately negotiating boundaries, both with those who hold our hearts and those who hold our passports.
