In the play, Sister Aloysius thinks her students should not be pampered, while Father Flynn believes that the clergy should be thought of as a member of the family. When she suspects Father Flynn of misconduct, these two schools of thought come into direct conflict.
The cast will feature Cassidy Brown as Father Flynn, Kimberly King as Sister Aloysius, Kristin Stokes as Sister James, and Tamikya White as Mrs. Muller.
