The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken take over a high school auditorium to hold a fundraising variety show to raise money to bury several sisters (who were accidentally poisoned by their cook). They must inter the nuns before the health inspector comes and finds the dead nuns in their freezer! Fraught with hilarity, both Catholic and otherwise, we watch as 5 nuns try to perform their planned performance amidst chaos and calamity.
See How They Run
January 31, February 1, 7, 8, and 9, 2014
See How They Run is a fast-paced farce about a young vicar's wife who is trying to fit into a small tightly-knit town. Set in the background of World War II, things go awry when a pompous church matron comes calling unannounced and a male friend from the young vicar's wife's past comes to visit while the good vicar is away. The bishop (the wife's uncle) shows up two days early and an escaped Russian convict hides in the house! The story moves into misinterpreted scandal, mistaken identities, the mugging of the good vicar, and the church matron's introduction to heavy drinking (which she has never done before). Throw in another vicar and a witty maid who is a little 'off'and you have a comedy that will make even the grumpiest audience laugh! Buy Tickets
