THE ACTOR'S NIGHTMARE AND SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU

Genre: Comedy
by Christopher Durang, directed by Doug Howe

THE ACTOR'S NIGHTMARE is a hilarious satire detailing the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor. In SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU, the titular Sister, a teaching nun who is much concerned with sin in all of its various forms, delivers a cautionary lecture to her charges. But when several of her former students turn up the picture darkens, along with Sister Mary's indignation.
