“Kicking the Habit”

A mean nun, a catholic schoolgirl & her timid Deaf mother who saves the day

One Act: 30 minutes

Excerpt:
For those of you who don’t know her, Sister Mary Concepta is about hundred and ten years old and has been dying of cancer for decades. But everyone says that she’s going to live forever because she’s so mean not even God wants her. Sister Mary Concepta is one of those nuns whose beady little eyes roams the classroom all day for another victim; someone too fat, too stupid, too poor, too weak, or too different and then she breaks them. All in the name of the good Lord, of course. It’s Catholic School Darwinism at it’s best. You haven’t road tested the down side of your life until you gotten on the bad side of a nun.
