Directed by Carly L. Bodnar
Written and Performed by Kelly Mccaughan
Catholic guilt was first written to take a look at religion and it's affect on the psyche. Religion can bring people together, and bring peace and meaning to life. It is often a huge part of one's identity. But what about the dark side of it? It can be polarizing, creating a sense of "us vs. them". Religion often drives people to act out of fear. People infused with religious dogma can become neurotic because of the fear of not being able to fulfill their religion's expectations. Kelly explores these ideas through the telling of her own personal experience.

Kelly McCaughan presents ‘Catholic Guilt’You can take the girl out of church...Alaina Mabaso
"Under director Carly L. Bodnar, the use of humorously ruminative voiceovers adds texture to McCaughan’s physical performance, which seamlessly involves the audience in some of Catholicism’s more anxiety-inducing rituals."
