The Convent

The cast of The Convent

In Dickey’s new play, a group of women go on a retreat to live like nuns in the Middle Ages and are baptized with 80s pop, female mysticism, hallucinogens, and sex. The Convent is a toothy dark comedy about desire, devotion and the mystery of intrinsic divinity.
