The Nun's Chorus
17th November 2022 Jackson's Lane Arts Centre
Nuns’ Chorus is set in 1950s Ireland and is based around an enclosed order of Carmelite nuns and their ‘enforced holiday’ of seven days and seven nights to Galway Bay. The play sees the nuns, having very reluctantly left the convent for the first time in many years, explore the paths which led them to convent life, and to a deepening understanding of the meaning of their sisterhood.
This is a sensitive, honest, at times funny, at times deeply moving journey through a very challenging part of Ireland’s story. The play also includes Irish music, song and dance, and references to great Irish literature.
