Unreconciled: A Performance by Jay Sefton

Unreconciled is the true story of an adolescent actor cast as Jesus in a school play directed by a parish priest. The story chronicles a survivor’s journey as he confronts his past, navigates a victims’ reparations program set up by the Catholic Church, and discovers the courage to use his voice. This 80-minute piece is a poignant and at times humorous exploration of family, place, and the meaning of reconciliation.  www.unreconciledtheplay.com

“Sefton put on an acting clinic, inhabiting 13 different characters. It all added up to one of the most amazing pieces of acting I’ve ever seen. It was also funny as hell and very moving.”
—Daily Hampshire Gazette

“An extraordinary work of art on the impossible topic.” 
—Terry McKiernan (Founder and President Bishop Accountability)
