Study in complexity
Veteran actor Martin Moran brings his acclaimed Obie Award-winning solo show The Tricky Part to the Mondavi Center’s Vanderhoef Studio Theatre. Moran, an established Broadway performer who has appeared in musicals such as Cabaret and Spamalot, performs this autobiographical monologue as an intensely personal account of youth and adulthood. It covers aspects of Catholicism, desire and human trespass as the 40-something Moran locates and confronts an older man who, as a summer camp counselor, abused the 13-year-old Moran decades earlier. 7 p.m. Thursday, June 1, through Saturday, June 3, $10-$20. Mondavi Center, 1 Shield Avenue in Davis; (530) 754-2787; www.mondaviarts.org.
