In Teatro de la Luna's La Vida Que Me Das... y no me alcanza (Such a Life You've Given Me... and it's not enough), three women explore both the fantasies and realities involved in motherhood and child rearing, not to mention balancing those activities with life as an actual human being with sexual desires. A U.S. premiere, this Argentine comedy was written by the award-winning playwright Susana Torres Molina. The show's performed in Spanish with English surtitles and there's a post-performance discussion following every Friday performance. Learn More

I suppose the show would have more meaning for those who attended strict Catholic parochial schools. I did not find it humorous, though certainly biting. At the point that the sister allowed former students to express views contrary to Catholic dogma, the play lost touch with reality; and when she started shooting them, it ceased to have any interest. The acting was okay, and the staging was imaginative all the way down to design of the program.
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.
