The Long Wharf Theatre will produce a workshop presentation of Martin Moran's new play, The Tricky Part, at its New Haven, Connecticut home, Oct. 15-25. Moran, a Broadway vet of Bells Are Ringing, Titanic and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, performs his solo work. Seth Barrish, who directed the developing work at Utah's Sundance Institute Theatre Lab, will once again direct.

The Tricky Part, delves into the personal life of its star and his 30-year struggle with the consequences of child sexual abuse. The candid work follows the story of a 12-year-old altar boy's introduction to sex.

Moran has also appeared on the Broadway stage in Oliver!, Big River and Cabaret. Other credits include A Man of No Importance, Floyd Collins, Bed and Sofa and One Two Three Four Five as well as appearances in the films "The Next Big Thing," "Private Parts" and on television's "Law & Order."
