Under the direction of Dr. Rex T. McGraw, the Marion Art Center Players will present “Drinking Habits” a laugh out loud farce in two acts by Tom Smith on November 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 7:30 pm and a matinee at 2:00 pm on Sunday, November 9.
Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional farce. Two nuns, Sister Augusta and Sister Philamena (played by Kim Teves and Linda Landry) at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, unbeknownst to Mother Superior (played by Suzie Kokkins). But Paul and Sally (played by Suzy and Gary Taylor), reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, Sister Mary Catherine (played by Michele Letourneau), spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Coupled with an august priest, Father Chenille (played by Prescott Crocker) and the trusty grounds keeper of the convent (played by Mark Letourneau), wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves. Hilarity ensues!
Laughter and wine! What better excuse to get a group of four together and reserve a cabaret table!
