Mariette in Ecstasy
Feb 13 – April 5, 2009
 


 

"Grippingly told, forcefully acted and intellectually engaging... one of the best Lifeline productions Iíve seen."  –Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
 
"Flawlessly adapted by Christina Calvit and directed by Elise Kauzlaric with a mix of magic and grace... [Brenda Barrie] is nothing short of transfixing"  –Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
 
"Director Elise Kauzlaricís mesmerizing vision is beautifully realized in part by virtue of Alan Donahueís gracefully spare set and a strong, convincing cast."  –Sarah Terez Rosenblum, Centerstage
 
"Portrayed by an outstanding ensemble with wit and skillfully etched detail"  –Megan Powell, Time Out Chicago
 

The Sisters of the Crucifixion live quiet lives of prayer and devotion until the intriguing Mariette is initiated into their cloister. When she experiences what may be a divine encounter, their unity is shattered into conflicting fragments of acceptance, envy, idolatry and fear, challenging the sisters' faith and the future of their sheltered existence. This national best-seller awakens our desire to find deeper meaning in our lives.

Recommended for mature audiences only.

A world premiere based on the contemporary best-seller by Ron Hansen
Adapted by Christina Calvit
Directed by Elise Kauzlaric
