Nunsense!

by Dan Goggin

When the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, they realize they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the local arts center which is currently in use. Here we meet Reverend Mother and the Sisters for a comic misadventure that is sure to be habit forming!

Sister Mary Regina

Sister Mary Regina was to the outside world a model Mother Superior. But to those who knew her, she was an outrageous, quick-witted soul who knew how to get a laugh. She tried to convince you that she was strict, but everyone knew that her “bark was worse than her bite!” — A feisty Sophie Tucker-type who can’t resist the spotlight.

Sister Mary Hubert
Sister Mary Hubert was a kind person who would always try to be understanding and diplomatic. She taught the Novices the ground rules, and was supposed to be dignified. But with the slightest bit of encouragement she was ready to kick up her heels. — The second in command, she is always competing with the Mother Superior.

Sister Robert Anne
Sister Robert Anne was a tough streetwise nun who had a heart of gold. All the kids adored her because she spoke their language. And she could hit a baseball “out of the park.” — A streetwise tough character from Brooklyn. A constant source of aggravation for the Mother Superior.

Sister Mary Amnesia
Sister Mary Amnesia was the picture of innocence. She couldn’t remember her past and so looked at each new day with a childlike joy. — This nun lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head. She is very sweet.

Sister Mary Leo
Sister Mary Leo had been a professional dancer before she entered the convent and was always eager to display her talent. She was very impressionable because she was young and could easily be led astray. — The novice, who has entered the convent with the firm desire to become the first nun ballerina.
