These DRINKING HABITS Aren't a Sin

So, in three days this wonderful and hilarious little show I've been directing finally opens. The show's called Drinking Habits and it revolves around the nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing, a small convent in Shady Glenn, Anywhere, USA. The Mother Superior of the convent is a very strict teetotaler who won't even allow anyone to mention a name associated with alcohol. However, unbeknownst to her, the two other sisters in the convent have been keeping the doors of their convent open by bootlegging wine on the side and selling it to the locals.  A possible early frost threatens their harvest.  Meanwhile, someone submitted one of the bottles of wine into a major competition where is won a huge sum on money. The only problem is no one knows for sure who made it. A couple of reporters suspect it's the nuns and they show up to investigate, but get mistaken for a nun and visiting priest. Through in a priest who used to do magic tricks, a simple groundskeeper, and another nun who holds a secret and you've got a show full of hilarity and hijinks. If you happen to be in the Highland, IL area this weekend or next, you should stop by and check it out.
