Wow! I don't know where to begin. It was so intense. Amazingly good actors and story! They just draw you right into it and you go through so many emotions. I can tell you I was not the only one to shed a few tears. I was quite surprised there...continued

On the plus side, the actors were very talented. On the negative, the play itself was too dogmatic, too Catholic biased, and overly dramatic. I left with very mixed feelings about the production and the Theatre.

It was wonderful! I saw it twice and referred others, who also loved it. The seating is wonderful, the stage is great and the actors were superb!

Description

Mercy Unrelenting recounts the events surrounding the tragic murder of a young Italian teenager, Maria Goretti, and the later reformation of her murderer, Alessandro Serenelli. 

The play begins 50 years after the crime when Alessandro, now an old man living in an obscure Franciscan monastery, is confronted with his painful history once again and the challenge of trying to bring good from the evils of his past. 

Mercy Unrelenting tells a shockingly dramatic story in a beautifully artistic way, exploring the nature of forgiveness, the possibility of redemption, and the sometimes controversial elements that surround this story. Written by Jeremy Stanbary, whose original dramas have been performed for tens of thousands across the U.S. as well internationally since 2003. 

Mercy Unrelenting is recommended for those age 13 or older. Parental discretion is advised. 

This show’s running time is two hours.
