Relevant, Ambitious, Well acted, Repetitive, Needs cutting/shaping

See it if you're interested in racial attitudes in 1964. High concept (Nigerian postulate in a NYC convent) plays out through well-drawn characters.

Don't see it if you want a fully polished script. Superficial discussion of impt issues is oft repeated. Prayer/faith abounds. Not always believable plot. Read more

Entertaining, Intelligent, Resonant, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a well written show with solid performances. Set in a different time, yet the issues raised are just as relevant today.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with representation of religion. Or don’t want to see a show staged in a church.

"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 writing...is skillful and delicate, artfully creating both loud, shouted moments and intimate conversations between the characters."
