Tristan Bates Theatre


Dutch Dame Productions and She's Diverse present 


by Robert Luxford 

15th - 26th January 2019 




“Bongs, chain smoking, liquor, sex tapes, blackmail and a desire to change the system. No, it’s not a college, it’s a convent!”



Nuns is a satirical comedy about three rebellious Nuns and how they plot to overthrow the mother superior in order to establish smoking rights for themselves. The youngest, Sister Bernadette is being seduced into the cause by Sister Catherine and Sister Rozza during one of their secret smoking sessions. They have a secret that they believe will bring the Mother Superior to her knees.

Dutch Dame’s gritty and witty take on Luxford’s Nuns draws you into a world of questioning patriarchal traditions and whether there is room for change in a systematically oppressive world. How far is too far? These sisters are willing to find out.

On Friday 18th January, there will be a post-show Q&A with Terri Paddock. Free for ticket holders for that evening's performance.
