    Synopsis: 

    Part courtroom drama, part whodunit, The Runner Stumbles is based on a true story of a Nun's mysterious murder in a remote parish in northern Michigan in the Nineteen teens and the charge that her superior, Father Rivard, is her murderer. The alternating action between interrogations, testimony and scenes from the past reveal that Father Rivard, who had been banished to the small, up-country parish, fell in love with Sister Rita; and when circumstances forced her to move into the rectory with him, his anguish became unbearable. Their relationship, inevitably, spelled tragedy, but not until the explosive and surprising climax of the play is the full extent of their sacrifice made clear.

    A Forbidden Attraction Is Just the Beginning

    May 6, 2012: Sex and murder don’t guarantee a successful play. But they sure don’t hurt its chances. That’s certainly true in “The Runner Stumbles,” a drama that surmounts more than a few problems to become quite an absorbing show.
