Bucks County Playhouse (BCP) welcomes Entertainment Events and their production of Late Nite Catechism, opening Feb. 3.
Nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award in New York, and having recently won the L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Lead Performance for Maripat Donovan, Late Nite Catechism is currently playing in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, St. Louis, Vancouver, Scottsdale, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Chicago.
Catechism classes are never as much fun – or as hilarious – as when they are led by “Sister” in this international hit comedy by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan. Performances run from Tuesday, Feb. 3 through Sunday, Feb. 15, and tickets start at $20 and are available online or by calling (215) 862-2121.
Colleen Moore (Sister) has enjoyed playing the role of Sister in national tours and off-Broadway for several years. Of particular relevance: Miss Moore was taught by Sisters of the Holy Cross at Blessed Sacrament School and at St. Mary’s High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Miss Moore lives in New York City.
More background from the press release:
“Late Nite Catechism is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back – sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully – to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of “students” (the audience). Over the course of the play, Sister goes from benevolent instructor, rewarding the “students” for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and laminated saint cards, to authoritative drill sergeant. These abrupt mood swings are bound to strike a resonant chord with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to school with an omniscient authoritarian at the helm.”
