Our Lady of 121st Street – Stephen Adly Guirgis

Several former students are coming to pay their respects to a beloved(?) nun from their Catholic school days who has passed away. Only someone has stolen the body. It’s the worst high school reunion you’ve ever been to with everyone you didn’t want to see.

Of the three plays in this collection, it is the funniest. There are great themes of self-acceptance, change, how hard it is to change, and the truth of tragedies that are never going to go away, pain that may never grow distant. It was fun to read, and with the large, rollicking cast and its great tempo, I think it would be fun to do.

Cast: 74FMultiple settings but easy transformations. Themes: You can’t go home again. People will do some crazy shit. Can’t you see that I’m different now?

Just read it.
