The Killing Of Sister George

The surprisingly dark 1964 comedy

"Bitchy fun."

- The New York Times
A pious nun on stage, and a serial cigar-chomping off duty, Sister George isn't just the kind-hearted nurse she plays on a popular British soap. In fact, June Buckridge, the actress who plays her, is abusive and has been known to reach for the bottle. When the execs at BBC find out, they kill off her character, unleashing a maelstrom of outrage. If this production has a guiding philosophy, it's don't judge a book by its cover. Fascinating on all fronts.
