Comedic Double-Bill for Thorneloe University’s Fall Mainstage

November 02, 2016


Thorneloe Theatre Arts and Cambrian College’s Theatre Arts – Technical Production Program proudly present an evening of comedy with a double bill by one of America’s foremost comic playwrights, Christopher Durang. The farcical THE ACTOR’S NIGHTMARE plays out George’s descent into confusion and panic as he is catapulted into a series of plays that he hasn’t rehearsed and doesn’t know the lines for. SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU is a satire on those nuns who taught us in elementary school and who resisted Pope John XXIII and the Second Vatican Council for their liberality.

For all of you actors out there, relive those dreams that we all have before performing. For all of you former Catholic elementary school children, come and visit Sister Mary Ignatius again and see if you agree with her this time around.

This hilarious double-bill will be performed at the Ernie Checkeris Theatre at Thorneloe University on the Laurentian University campus. Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, November 4 and 5, and Thursday through Saturday, November 10-12, at 7:30pm and on Sunday, November 6 at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for students and seniors. Call Thorneloe at 705-673-1730 x0 for reservations or buy tickets online at
