“THE MARY WORSHIPPERS OF SHEEPSHEAD BAY” is set in a catholic church in Brooklyn New York during the late 1950’s to the mid 1960’s. The seven Irish and Italian American resident priests and nuns have found themselves caught up in the gathering storm of the winds of change during the age of social unrest, political upheavals, and especially the Sexual Revolution, as a new era descend upon them like fallout from a mushroom cloud as they search for a new identity, a new life, and a new God while trying to find their way in the shadow of the ATOMIC AGE.
