Once A Catholic by Mary O'Malley

Drama With A Difference Performance Group | 27-Jul-2016
"Once A Catholic" is a famous play that satirises Catholicism in a comic manner. It is set in an all girls' Catholic school in the late 1950's where three teenagers (all with the name "Mary") are beginning to ask questions about their faith. Brilliantly written by Irish playwright Mary O'Malley, the characters include hormonal adolescents, nutty and sometimes nasty nuns, an eccentric music teacher and a priest with a love of the lord and of liquor. It is a brilliant, satirical look at Catholicism in general.

Once A Catholic DWAD
The show "Once A Catholic" is being performed by one of Australia's most established independent drama schools, Drama With A Difference.

With classes for all levels and ages, this cast is a mix of adults and teenagers - all of whom have auditioned to take part in the production.

"Once A Catholic" is a famous play by Irish playwright Mary O'Malley, and has been performed at great length throughout the English speaking world. Set in a convent school for girls in the late 1950's, the play has numerous eccentric and wonderful characters, and combines a mix of raw comedy with real questions about faith, adolescence, fairness, power and humanity. This show is a must for anyone who was raised as a Catholic, and for anyone interested in the questions posed by any religion.

"Once A Catholic" is a family play, whose characters include nutty nuns and priests, depicted in a way that is light and funny. Although the play does look at the power struggles between nuns and their students, there is nothing in this play that veers into any of the current, more serious nature of abuse within the Catholic, (and other) church. It is a play that would be suitable for anyone aged 13 to 113.
