Madman and the Nun
Set in a mental hospital, a novice nun has been recruited to help rehabilitate the mad poet in their care.  As the plot twists and turns towards its conclusion what becomes clear is that the poet Alexander Walburg -- diagnosed as mad -- is completely sane and it is the world that has gone mad!  Originally written in 1923, Madman and the Nun exemplified the style later borrowed by the counterculture movements of the 60s and is echoed in Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest incorporating serious topics with humor, absurdity and copious drug use.    

PERFORMANCE DATES: August 10, 11, 17, 18, 24 and 25 at 7:30pm; August 19 at 2pm.
