The interactive comedy Late Night Catechism invites audiences into a Catholic classroom that bears a striking resemblance to a theater, where a nun named Sister will school them on etiquette, the Bible, and glow-in-the-dark rosaries. In its 14th year gracing stages across the country, the play’s Boston run stars Denise Fennell, who honed her improvisational chops as the female lead in Tony ‘n’ Tina’s Wedding. Riffing off the script, Fennell fully embodies the character of Sister as she banters back and forth with theatergoers, whom she refers to as her students, during question-and-answer sessions. Throughout the show, she makes sure the audience behaves, gifting good students with Catholic-themed prizes and punishing hecklers and texters by making them sit in the naughty chair. Late Night Catechism lightheartedly strives to shatter the mystique of nuns and directs its humor toward people of all ages, faiths, and eyeglass prescriptions.
