WILL CLARK grew up in a paper mill town in Wisconsin but became a New Yorker in the early 90s. Will has been entertaining for the past 20 years, first as an actor after having earned a Masters degree in Theatre from Northwestern University (1993) and then in adult films (1995 – 2003). He then toured with his one man show about his life in the industry, “Altered Ego” (2002 – 2005, New York, Chicago, Provincetown, New Orleans).
A Letter From The Bishop is about the friendship shared by three gay priests and how they react to their homophobic bishop's demand that all his priests read a letter ordering Catholics to vote against same-sex marriage. One of the priests objects to the bishop's demand. This alters his friendship with the other two and causes a show-down with the bishop. The answer to the question “Will he or won’t he read the anti-gay letter?” is revealed in the final scene.
A Letter From The Bishop will have its first New York City reading at St. Clement’s Off-Broadway Theater, 423 West 46th Street, at 7PM on June 11, 2012. (Fort Lauderdale’s Stonewall National Museum and Archives hosted the first reading of the play on February 13, 2012.)
