In Jessica Dickey's new play The Convent, a group of women go on a retreat to live like nuns in the Middle Ages and are baptized with ’80s pop, female mysticism, hallucinogens, and sex. The new play by The Amish Project playwright will receive its world premiere at A.R.T./New York Theatres this winter, directed by Daniel Talbott.

The Convent will begin performances January 17, 2019, ahead of a January 24 opening. Casting and ticket information will be announced at a later date.

The world-premiere engagement, scheduled through February 17, is presented Off-Broadway by Weathervane Productions and Rising Phoenix Repertory, in association with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.

The production will feature scenic design by Raul Abrego, costume design by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Joel Moritz, sound design by Daniel Melnick, and projection design by Katherine Freer. Kendra Bator serves as executive producer. General manager is Snug Harbor Productions, Inc.

Dickey's other plays include The Rembrandt, Row After Row, and Charles Ives Take Me Home.
