Getting Into The Habit
by Way Off Broadway Community Players
Feb. 29 (2016)
Into the quiet convent of St Philomena in Maine, a famous middle-aged film star comes looking for sanctuary. The only way she can stay is by “getting into the habit” and fooling the resident nuns (who are neither meek nor unsophisticated) that she is authentic. When her handsome young husband comes looking for her, she has to persuade him that she is an authentic nun. Maybe she can fool the other nuns, but will she be able to fool the man she loves…? And what are the consequences she must face for her outrageous behavior in this holy sanctuary?
This is the world premiere of this delightfully funny show!
Directed by Rick White
