In the world premiere, a group of women go on a retreat to live like nuns in the Middle Ages—with unexpected results.

In Jessica Dickey's The Convent, a group of women go on a retreat to live like nuns during the Middle Ages. What happens next? They are baptized with ’80s pop, female mysticism, hallucinogens, and sex. That's only part of the story.

Directed by Daniel Talbott, the world premiere of The Convent begins January 16 at A.R.T./New York Theatres. In the video above, the cast and creative team open up about Dickey's new play, an exploration of desire, devotion, and the mystery of intrinsic divinity.

The cast of The Convent is made up of Amy Berryman, Annabel Capper, Margaret Odette, Brittany Anikka Liu, Lisa Ramirez, Samantha Soule, and Wendy vanden Heuvel.

The production will open January 24 and run through February 17.
