It was a very mixed bag between depicting women totally dedicated to their God, religious raptures, and a very stereotypical presentation of the inquisition and its abuses mixed with more modern scenes of sexual abuse by a priest. Apparently a lot of the script was taken from a book Teresa published. It probably would read a whole lot better in the original than this modification for the stage. The best thing about the play was the creative set. Those columns and walkways really captured the architecture of a Spanish convent. G.H.
