The Tricky Part was created by Martin Moran, a sexual abuse survivor himself. In this one man show, the character's childhood and later years are examined as the issues of his life take hold, including desire, religion, and human trespass. The production earned an Obie Award in 2004.

The Necessary Theatre's Robert McFarland will perform the one-man show, which was directed by Laurene Scalf.
