Description

The Obie Award winning comedy centers around a fanatical nun who comes face to face with a quartet of her traumatized former students. _ The Village Voice_ wrote, “Sister Mary… is a hysterically funny, bitter, anguished,  out-of-control moral comedy” and Newsweek called it “ferociously funny.”

The show runs one hour, with an optional nightly talkback.

This event is recommended for those age 14 or older.

Directed by Joe Banno and featuring Cam Magee as Sister Mary Ignatius.
