What is your current project?
The Convent of St Clare. Abortion, lesbians, a holier than thou mother superior, a priest and a determined fiancee all make this story not your grandmother’s Catholic Church. “The Convent Of St Clare” a new dramedy debuts in the Thespis Festival at Hudson Guild Theatre this fall. Come see how all is crumbling under the weight of changing times and unconventional habits. The cast features two actors, Amy Losi and Kalen J. Hall from last year’s critically acclaimed de Simone/Gleason production of “Olivia’s Roses”. Rounding out the cast are Lisa Dennett, Kalene Speranza, Kaitlin Paige Adkison, Ed Ryan and Andrea Warriner. Jayde Fuentes is the Stage Manager.
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
Hudson Guild Theatre on 26th Street in Manhattan….intimate 99 sear theatre where you can get close to the sordid, sorry and silly action of the nunnery.
