Quotes & Highlights
“Scot Augustson’s Penguins —- the late-night series whose first installment opened this past weekend at Annex Theatre -— is something new in the world of Catholic mockery. Set in a cartoonish diocese where the nuns and priests engage in a constant war for power, Penguins rejects both pointed Catholic satire and any and all warmth-and-fuzziness by coming on like a hard-boiled crime thriller, with gangster priests, gun-toting nuns, and a bottomless well of depravity.” —The Stranger
Annex Theatre’s smash success, Penguins, returns! To consolidate his power over the parish, Father Jones decides to rid himself of the meddlesome Sister Bernadette – setting off an ecclesiastical turf war of biblical proportions! Featuring blasphemy, heresy, dancing, guns, organ music, puppet sex, and much much more, Penguins will shock and delight Catholics and non-Catholics alike!
Written by Scot Augustson (Sgt. Rigsby & His Amazing Silhouettes), directed by Bret Fetzer (director of Small Town by Kelleen Conway Blanchard), featuring Daniel Christensen, Chris Dietz, Teri Lazzara, Sophie Lowenstein, Jenny Schmidte, Jillian Vashro, Lisa Viertel, and Clayton Weller.
