“A powerful inter play between the true self (who I am), the false self (who I project myself to be or the only self I know myself to be) and the voice of Thomas Merton (a voice of wisdom) challenging me to be the self I am called to be - the transformed self. Superbly acted, mirroring the
complexity of the human person, celebrating the role of the wisdom person who we need to meet in our lives. Doug challenges us to find that person.” - Father Carl Arico
“Doug’s ability to weave Merton’s brilliance into his own life experience is profound, moving,
and insightful.” - Teresa Scott
“Doug has created a contemporary Seven Story Mountain in theatrical form.” - Carol A. Joyce, Phd
