"Fine, funny, loving." - Hollywood Reporter
"Brilliant....A rollicking comedy that speaks to anyone who has known the terrible fears and insecurities that so often accompany..."the carefree days of youth."' -Westport News 

The Backyard Theater Ensemble will present this unique storytelling experience exploring the trials, tribulations, and joys of growing up Catholic in the 1960s. A cast of four women will portray four young girls, and the nuns that teach them, in this satirical, memory play set at St. George's School in Yonkers, NY. The play opens with the girls on their first day of first grade and follows them through eighth grade and beyond as each of the girls battles with her demons, both internal and external. At times, hilarious, at times, heartfelt and moving-- whether you were raised Catholic, married a Catholic, or simply sat through a Catholic communion ceremony, there is something here for you.  



BTE will proudly present a piece by Sam Shepard
