A Letter From The Bishop is a play about the friendship shared by three gay priests and how they react to their 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 leads to a confrontation 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.
