The Actor’s Nightmare & Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All to You
by Christopher Durang
Directed by Michael O’Steen

Acclaimed satirist Christopher Durang takes on the theatre and Catholic school in his hilarious companion one-acts, The Actor’s Nightmare and Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All to You. After George has to go on for an ill actor, it’s not clear what show it is or even who wrote the play! But, the stakes become more and more real as the play moves toward a bewildering climax. In Sister Mary, the eponymous nun has a nightmare of her own as a group of students confront their former teacher. Amid the confessions and dogma, Durang exposes those truths that cause us to laugh as well as cry.
