July 28 – August 2
The Queer Arts Festival Society and Vancouver’s queer-centric Frank Theatre Company team up to bring a FUN one-woman show to the Roundhouse. The comedy by Toronto-based playwright Flerida Peña will have you gasping for air between laughs.
Abby, at the centre of the story, is a devout and naive teenager. She ventures out on her first day at ‘Crown of Thorns’ academy after falling in love for the first time. Watch her embark on an exhilarating “mission” that takes her “beyond the walls of her all-girls school, to the grounds of St. Peter’s Square”.
You can bet Jesus is guiding the way for Abby. And why wouldn’t He? Nobody (and no book) ever said He sticks to the same “way” for everyone. All of Abby’s “notions about herself and the church are turned on their head” in this coming-of-age(and out of the closet) hilarious adventure.
Cahoots Theatre Company developed and produced the world premiere of ‘Sister Mary’s a Dyke’ in Toronto in April 2013.
The Vancouver production features Vancouver actor and musician Kim Villagante. Jan Derbyshire directs this rollicking madcap adventure, which runs from July 28 to August 2. Tickets are $20 except for the August 2 performance, which is ‘pay-what-you-can’. (It’s also ASL-interpreted.)
