FOR THE LOVE OF ME
By Kate McLeod
Directed by Alisa Matlovsky
1886: A young woman packs her dreams, her beliefs and her determination, boards a coffin ship and lands in the rat-infested streets of New York City. She finds work at a famous household in the Hudson Valley, on her knees scrubbing floors. A young man, who has made the same journey tends the barn animals. His conversations with the horses give him an idea: write a book! A Catholic priest, intent on saving souls, pays particular attention to the Irish servants residing in Protestant households. The Church is a weapon against faithlessness and he is the savior. What happens when these three souls cross paths? What happens to the dreams and deep-seated beliefs when confronted with the realities of class, ambition and vulnerable human drive?
