How to Write a New Book for the Bible
by Bill Cain
directed by Kent Nicholson
A world premiere co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre

Writers are told to write what they know. But as Bill Cain discovers in writing about his own family, sometimes those we are closest to are the biggest mysteries of all. From the writer of Equivocation comes a beautiful new play taken from Cain's own experiences caring for his dying mother. He asks the questions that speak to the heart of every family: What will never change...and what has to? A Jesuit priest as well as a playwright, Cain brings a fascinating view to this simple, powerful illustration of why the details of our lives and loves matter.
