About The Event
Directed by Ryan Kolb, the play features Sandra Broussard as the stern nun, Sister Aloysius Beauvier, who believes that one of the priests at the St. Nicholas Catholic Church and school has been molesting a 12-year-old boy named Donald Muller, the school's only African American student. Sister Aloysius recruits a young, naive nun (Sister James, played by Amanda Caldwell) to assist her in monitoring the suspicious yet charismatic Father Flynn (Casey Harmon). She also addresses her concerns to Donald's mother (Tina Burkhalter), who, surprisingly, is not horrified or even shocked by the allegations. (Mrs. Muller is more concerned about her son getting into high school and avoiding a beating from his dad.) The play concludes with a one-on-one confrontation between Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn as she attempts to get the truth out of the priest.
