Late Nite Catechism
DATE: Sept. 6-9
LOCATION: Starr Theater at Walton Arts Center
Sister returns to NWA in this 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—Catholic or not!
