Dark comedy. Jack took to heart his 2nd-grade nun’s teaching 50 years ago that, no matter how evil a life he led, he could still go to heaven provided he made a perfect deathbed confession. Now, at the end of a crime-filled life, Jack lies dying, attended only by Bartholomew, his browbeaten son who despises him almost as much as he loves and wants to reconcile with him. Enter Father Gallagher, a soul-weary priest, about to encounter the most bizarre confession of his career.

CASTING:

BARTHOLOMEW
Mid 20s – early 30s, yet filled with the anger, uncertainty and awkwardness of a 13-year-old. Agoraphobic. Buddhist. Artist trying to define himself as separate from his criminal, Catholic overbearing father.

JACK
50s. Bartholomew’s father. Dying criminal. Though he is not well, his iron constitution masks this. Devout Catholic. Crusty, larger-than-life, charming storyteller. The type of guy you love to hate. Believes confession will set him free in the end.

FATHER GALLAGHER
50s. Roman Catholic priest. A spare man. Weary, dispirited and preoccupied with his own problems – a bit of a bumbler. He is to priesthood what Maxwell Smart is to spies. He desperately wants to find his faith again, or at least have the time to search for it.

TOMMY
Around Jack’s age. Tall, heavy, brutish neighborhood thug and drunk. A bully, not above using his emotions to get what he wants. More clever than people would think. Out for money or vengeance; determined that if he doesn’t get his share from a bank heist, he can at least have the pleasure of killing Jack.
