Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
This paper details the writing process and performance of my autobiographical one-person play, Lucky Charms. The play presents my decision to leave the Jesuit novitiate while in the midst of a crisis of faith. Through the recollection of various experiences from childhood and adolescence, the narrator attempts to discover what it means to truly have a “spiritual experience.” Along with my own perspective, the piece also incorporates various other characters from the author’s past. In this document I have detailed the challenges and difficulties of writing and performing this piece, examined the theoretical and practical implications of its major themes, and have included a written copy of the script.
