It’s 2001, the world has changed irreparably and somewhere in the middle of Ireland a girl fights for the meaty role of Mary of Nazareth in the school nativity.

This is a show about righting a wrong and looking like you want it enough. Pull up a pew, light a candle and listen to someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about for an hour
