SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU
By Christopher Durang
November 30 - December 16, 2023
8 PM Thursdays-Saturdays
Additional performance 2 PM Sunday, December 10.
Sister Mary Ignatius has happily been teaching children about the glories of Catholicism and the perils of sin and hellfire for years at her church. What’s a good shepherd to do when it is revealed that members of her flock have strayed far from the path of righteousness? The results are surprising, yet absolutely hilarious. Sister Mary examines the sharp truths about
human nature and religion.
