Celebration Theatre presents The DIVINE SISTER

Celebration Theatre will present the Houston premiere of Charles Busch’s raucous and bitingly funny
THE DIVINE SISTER
Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m.
Sundays at 3:00 p.m. May 27 ‐ July 3.

Playwright/actor Busch never met a film genre that he could not spoof and with THE DIVINE SISTER he has outdone himself! Carving a career out of sending up films, as in VAMPIRE LESBIANS OF SODOM, DIE, MOMMIE, DIE!, and THE LADY IN QUESTION, for THE DIVINE SISTER Busch has ransacked most every nun movie ever made. The outrageous, irreverent, and laugh out loud parody references such films as DOUBT, SISTER ACT, AGNES OF GOD, THE TROUBLE WITH ANGELS, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, THE SINGING NUN, THE SONG OF BERNADETTE, THE BELLS OF ST. MARY’S, HIS GIRL FRIDAY, and even THE DA VINCI CODE.

The plot of THE DIVINE SISTER revolves around the Mother Superior (played by Busch in the Off Broadway run of the play and now traditionally played by a man in drag). She is the indomitable leader of St. Veronica’s Convent and is determined to build a new school for the postulants. Along the way, she must deal with a novice nun who experiences “visions”, sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive
school boy struggling with his sexuality, an aggressive nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows. An outrageous comic homage to Hollywood nuns, THE DIVINE SISTER is a fast paced, wickedly funny evening of theatre.
