MANON, SANDRA AND THE VIRGIN MARY
January 11 - February 2

“A hauntingly powerful evening of theatre”

— Vancouver Express

The quietly pious Manon contemplates her purchase of an extravagant new rosary, while Sandra, the irreverent, devil-may-care drag queen, tries to decide what she will wear tonight. Penned by one of our country’s most celebrated and prolific queer writers, these parallel monologues shed light on the sacred and the profane that exist within us all.
