In which an over-the-top nun relates the story of her life in soliloquies which emphasize her narrowly focused religious Weltanschauung. As usual with plays, this is better seen than read, but nonetheless a quick, fun read. ( )

Wikipedia: The play revolves around a nun, Sister Mary Ignatius, explaining to the audience the basic tenets of Catholicism. She is assisted by her seven-year-old favorite student Thomas. From time to time she asks him catechism questions, and gives him a cookie for every right answer. Half-way into her speech, some of her former students, now grown up, enter to perform a mock Christmas pageant from their childhood days and reveal to Sister Mary the deep psychological trauma her teachings left on them. Sister Mary's unwavering dogma combined with the absurdist nature of the play add elements of biting comedy.
