If you loved the Chattanooga Theatre Centre’s “Psycho Beach Party” a couple of years ago (and who didn’t), don’t miss “The Divine Sister” on the CTC’s Circle Stage for two more weekends.
As the CTC puts it, “Like ‘Psycho Beach Party,’ the play spoofs a film genre. This time, it’s an outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns: ‘The Song of Bernadette, ‘ ‘The Bells of St. Mary's,’ ‘The Singing Nun, ‘ ‘Doubt,’ ‘Agnes of God,’ and even ‘The DaVinci Code.’
Not for those offended by adult language and men wearing nun outfits, “The Divine Sister,” again according to the CTC, “tells the story of St. Veronica's indomitable Mother Superior who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way, she has to deal with a young postulant who is experiencing ‘visions,’ sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows.”
If you get there early, you can join in the Nun Run to win prizes. We have no idea (nun) what that is but is sounds fabulous.
