Please note: Due to COVID restrictions, the BDC will not be performing a live show this fall.
Instead, we will record and stream our production on the Broadway On Demand web site.
Our Fall Production will be “Drinking Habits” by Tom Smith
a farce in 2 acts
Presented by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
Director: CherylAnn Welch
Co-Producers: CherylAnn Welch & Marcus Hatch
Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent’s doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancés, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a priest and a nun, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.
