In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
_"My Wonderful Day is one of the wittiest and most pristinely crafted of Mr. Ayckbourn’s dark farces."—_Wall Street Journal
“My Wonderful Day finds Ayckbourn in top form—and breaking new ground.”—The Telegraph
Nine-year-old Winnie is off sick from school for the day, but has an essay to write about “My Wonderful Day.” What better opportunity than quietly seated unnoticed in a corner, while her pregnant mother busies herself cleaning the home of a British television celebrity? When her Mother goes into labor, Winnie’s left in the house alone with the celebrity, his mistress, his wife and his best friend, discovering a wealth of material for her essay. The bizarre and increasingly frenetic comings and goings of adults in the weird household where she’s a silent observer fuels an essay that shocks her mother, but provides endless entertainment for the audience along the way.
