The Place of Understanding
by Michael John McGoldrick
The story of a couple whose marriage is torn apart by tragedy, scenes before the event dramatize their relationship before the catastrophe; scenes after show them coping with its aftermath. A play about love, loss, anguish and faith.
Michael John McGoldrick’s play The Moment After was a National Finalist in the Gary Garrison TenMinute Play Competition sponsored by KCACTF in April 2018. His full length play Wolf and Badger was a finalist in Trustus Theatre’s 2018 Playwrights’ Festival. Children of Philadelphia was a finalist in the 2015 Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition sponsored by the Alleyway Theater in Buffalo. By the Shores of Alluvtoomey was a finalist in Playhouse on the Square’s NewWorks@TheWorks 2nd Annual Playwriting Competition. His 10-minute play The Chinese Life Force was a People’s Choice Winner in the 12th Annual InspiraTO Festival in Toronto, Canada. Michael's other plays have received staged readings from The Theater Project, New Jersey Repertory Company, The Monarch Theater, Sundog Theater, Strange Dog Theater, and Now and Then Creative Company. He graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Dramatic Writing from Arizona State University in May 2018.
"As director of the Cranford Public Library, I attend nearly all of The Theater Project play readings, and I am never less than highly impressed by the quality of the productions."
John Malar, Director
