With wisdom, humor and insight, The Busy World Is Hushed examines the contradictions we find in our faith, our families, and ourselves. Hannah, a widowed Episcopal minister, is hoping to translate a long-lost gospel when she is challenged by both her scholarly assistant and her wayward gay son. But when family secrets are revealed, only the intercession of a stranger can help Hannah find peace.More
Hannah is a widowed Episcopal minister. Brandt is the young literary assistant she hires to help her translate a long-lost gospel. Thomas is her prodigal gay son, who spends his life trying to distance himself from his mother and anyone who might love him. These three characters form the complex and humorous triangle at the heart of this play about faith and family. This excellent audio presentation is the result of the high-level performances delivered by Jill Clayburgh, Hamish Linklater, and Luke MacFarlane. Since they were the original off-Broadway cast, they easily bring dramatic and dynamic range to their characters. Included is an exclusive author interview that provides great insights.
