The Morgan-Wixson Theatre in Santa Monica is presenting a limited engagement of the plays Sister Mary Ignatius Explains it All For You—and—The Actor’s Nightmare—by Christopher Durang through Saturday, May 29th.
Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre, 2627 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.
In Sister Mary Ignatius, a teaching nun who is concerned with sin in all of its various forms, delivers a cautionary lecture with several of her former students telling their stories which are at once disturbing and amusing, a theater spokesperson explains. It is quickly apparent that one thing they all have in common is their loathing for Sister Mary and the unyielding dogma she forced on them in their formative years.
The Actor’s Nightmare, also by Durang, finds character George Spelvin as the understudy for an actor who has apparently broken both legs and he must perform in the actor’s stead. But George cannot remember attending rehearsals or being an actor at all, and he is unable to get a straight answer as to what the play is about, the theater spokesperson explains.
The plays are directed by Jeremy Aluma.
Tickets are $18 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors.
