Back to School
Two one act plays to round out your education.
The evening begins with the Christopher Durang classic Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For
You. Before there was Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike, before Betty’s Summer Vacation or Beyond Therapy there was Sister Mary, the Nun who teaches grade school and explained how life works. Here she gives her lessons to you and to her young student Thomas, who loves her, like all of Sister Mary’s students. Four of them return to present the Christmas Pagent for Sister Mary but one of them has something else in mind. Don’t worry, I’m sure Sister Mary has something up her sleeve.
We complete the evening with The Lesson by Eugéne Ionesco. One of the greatest writers of the French Avant-garde, Rhinoceros, The Bald Soprano, we are pleased to present one of his early works. An absurd but terrifying private lesson in “New Spanish” and obedience unfolds as a student comes to the home of the Professor. Slowly the position of power and authority devour the humanity and a grotesque lesson is learned.
Presented with a 10 minute intermission.
