Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant, Smart

See it if You enjoy a well written play about nuns during the race riots of 1964 in New York. How they felt inside the walls and in their hearts.

Don't see it if You don't want to watch theatre sitting in church pews. Have no curiosity about nuns lives, esp during the change. Read more

Resonant, Funny, Great writing, Great acting, Profound

See it if you want to see a profound, character driven new play that exposes racism where least expected. Brilliant writing surprises you with humor!

Don't see it if you're looking for a lavish production. This is a low budget, 1st production of a great play. The church is echo-ey, so sit up front. Read more

"A fascinating and timely piece of work. With conversations that are still familiar today, a wonderful cast, and a beautifully-written story, the world-premiere production is a must-see...Throughout the play, the stories of the nuns are told, giving each character solid motivations for their actions and providing a well of emotional depth...McCasland’s skillful and delicate, artfully creating both loud, shouted moments and intimate conversations between the characters."
