Very funny and thought provoking at the same time, particularly for those brought up in either evangelical or Catholic churches. The Main stage at Olney Theater is a lovely, intimate venue. Goldstar came through once again with fabulous seats, even though I bought the tickets 2 days before the event!
In this hilarious new comedy, a Pentecostal missionary gets more than she bargained for when she drops in on two sisters who are staunch Catholics: sweet, susceptible Margaret and feisty, high-spirited Mary. These sisters enjoy a comfortable routine, including BBC sitcoms and cooking dinner for their priest. However, when the missionary causes Margaret’s seemingly-solid faith to waver, Mary stages a divine intervention to bring her sister back into the fold. Enlisting the aid of their unsuspecting parish priest, she throws a devilish dinner party that becomes a smack-down of biblical proportions.
