The TCDS Presents: Actorʼs Nightmare & Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You (DOUBLE FEATURE)
November 18, 2015
The Actorʼs Nightmare & Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All to You is a double feature of two one-act absurdist comedies written by Christopher Durang. In The Actor’s Nightmare, we meet George Spelvin, a bewildered accountant who finds himself inexplicably thrust onstage and expected to perform in a variety of plays he has no recollection of rehearsing. In Sister Mary Ignatius, the titular character’s sunday school-style lecture is interrupted by the arrival of four of her past students, who have grown-up severely damaged by her dogmatic teachings. Startling, hilarious, and puzzling, both plays are guaranteed to leave you entertained… while also slightly unsettled by the feeling that some serious truths have been told amid the laughter.
*Trigger Warning: The content of this show contains the discussion of sensitive topics such as sexual assault and physical abuse.
