Show Synopsis

In Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You, the good Sister Mary, a Catholic school nun, delivers a lesson in religion and hilarity - as well as answering a few questions about herself - with the assistance of her star pupil, Thomas. However, when several of her former students return to perform her favorite nativity pageant, she is delighted - That is, until she finds out the real reason why they've come back.

The Actor's Nightmare is just that; accountant George Spelvin must go on stage for an injured actor - for a play he's never rehearsed. Convinced it's a dream, he plays along, humorously fumbling his way through Noel Coward's Private Lives, Shakespeare's Hamlet, a fictitious play by Beckett, finally finding himself in the role of Sir Thomas More in Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons. As his head is put on the chopping block, George discovers that it may not be a dream after all.
