Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Durang is probably best known for Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You, which ignited storms of protest and played to sold-out houses wherever it was produced in the early 1980s Durang uses his absurd humor to challenge the rigidity of some religious beliefs, as well as homophobia, methods of psychoanalysis, marriage, and parenthood....His plays may offend some, but they are always thought-provoking and entertaining." Library Journal

Synopsis:
