More Information


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.”

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