Jessica Dickey’s new play The Convent opens January 24 at A.R.T./New York Theatres. The new play follows the intersecting stories of a group of women who go on a retreat to live like nuns during the Middle Ages. There, they are baptized with ’80s pop, female mysticism, hallucinogens, and much more.
After beginning preview performances on January 17, the production, directed by Daniel Talbott, is set to run through February 17. The cast is made up of Amy Berryman, Annabel Capper, Margaret Odette, Brittany Anikka Liu, Lisa Ramirez, Samantha Soule, and Wendy vanden Heuvel.
