The Killing of Sister George
Sister George is a hit. The beloved character is featured on a popular BBC radio drama, brought to life by actress June Buckridge. But June couldn’t be more different from her saintly alter ego. She’s a drunk, cigar-smoking, abusive diva with other predilections her employers find unsavory, and is about to get fired. That means that Sister George will have to die—and June isn’t going to let that happen without a fight.
Frank Marcus’s dark comedy was considered both shocking and groundbreaking when it premiered in 1964, and its 1968 film adaptation earned one of the earliest X-ratings in film history. In this production—the first in New York for more than three decades— Broadway veteran Caitlin O’Connell takes up June’s flask and dons Sister George’s radio-ready costume.
