  Late Nite Catechism at Royal George Theatre

Late Nite Catechism

Royal George Theatre
1641 N. Halsted Chicago

Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play, written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, where the irrepressible Sister teaches class to a roomful of "students." Throughout the course of the play the benevolent instructor rewards audience members for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. Now in its 20th year in Chicago, Late Nite Catechism is a sharp satire, but never mean. It’s simply an evening of fun and laughter.

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...A bona fide born-in-Chicago international hit, this simultaneously nostalgic and satirical comedy by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan concerns a nun instructing her students—that's you—on the dos and don'ts of dogma."

Jack Helbig

Windy City Times - Highly Recommended

"...Encapsulated in this cheerfully acerbic reply is the reason that Late Nite Catechism has run continuously for 17 years in countless cities. The duty of any religion is to address its own time, and even if (like me) you're not Catholic, as long as you can remember not to sit with legs crossed or shout out your answers during quizzes—"We are not Baptists!" admonishes Sister—this smart, but never hostile, little show offers a diversity of humorously incisive observations to take home with you."

Mary Shen Barnidge

NewCity Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...Between teaching hilarious new prayers (“Hail Mary, full of Grace, help me find a parking space”), reminiscing about Catholic school, and raising funds for sisters in need, it’s not hard to see why the show is such a success."
