COFFEE CUP THEATRE COMPANY BRINGS SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU & FOR WHOM THE SOUTHERN BELLE TOLLS TO THE STAGE
Coffee Cup Theatre Company (CCTC) is staging Sister Mary Ignatius Explains it All for You and For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls by Christopher Durang. The production will be performed on January 24, 25, 26, 31, February 1, 2 at The Rudyard Kipling, located at 422 West Oak Street
Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You revolves around a nun, Sister Mary Ignatius, explaining to the audience the basic tenets of Catholicism. She is assisted by her favorite student, seven-year-old Thomas. From time to time, she asks him catechism questions and gives him a cookie for every right answer. Half-way into her speech, some of her former students, now grown up, enter to perform a mock Christmas pageant from their childhood days and reveal to Sister Mary the deep psychological trauma her teachings left on them. Sister Mary's unwavering dogma combined with the absurdist nature of the play add elements of a biting comedy.
For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls is a parody of The Glass Menagerie. The fading Southern Belle, Amanda tries to prepare her hypersensitive son Lawrence for the “feminine caller”. Terrified of people Lawrence just wants to play with his cocktail stirrers and brother Tom just wants to go to the movies where he meets sailors who need to be put up in his room. Amanda tries to face everything with “charm and vivacity” but sometimes she just wants to hit somebody.
