From the co-author of Late Nite Catechism, comes her latest show, adapted from the hilarious best-selling book Don’t Chew Jesus! and enhanced with ALL-NEW material and interviews, about nuns and our relationship to them! Changing Habits starts out as a look back at Catholic nuns and the impact they had on millions of Americans, and finishes up with a look forward at what nuns themselves think the future holds for them and what they think their legacy will be. Nuns of yesteryear were amusing, enthusiastic, devoted, strict and often single-minded in purpose. Sisters touched millions in a variety of ways, all of them memorable. The play pays tribute to nuns and gives them a direct voice to us on questions about the future and memories of the past that we normally don’t get to hear. Hilarious anecdotes cover subjects ranging from religious training, habits, and devotion, to discipline, pranks, crowning May Queen, and the always-dicey sex education!
Praise for the book – “Sisters were the foot soldiers of Catholic education. Those of us who marched with them are glad we did. Don’t Chew Jesus! gives us a chance to relive that journey.” John Powers, Author of Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?
Praise for the play – “A comedy not to miss! A look back at Catholic nuns and the impact they had on millions of Americans. Delightfully funny!!” – Sisters of the Divine Redeemer
