Photo Flash: First Look at Doug Joseph, Ralph Scott and More in Short North Stage's THE DIVINE SISTER

Short North Stage presents The Divine Sister, written by the celebrated actor, playwright and female impersonator, Charles Busch, author of such camp classics as Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, Die Mommy, Die,and Psycho Beach Party. It runs May 29 to June 15, 2014. Check out a first look below!

"This gleefully twisted tale," wrote the New York Times, is Mr. Busch's freshest, funniest work in years, perhaps decades." Evoking such films as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary's, The Singing Nun, and Agnes of God, The Divine Sister tells the story of an indomitable Mother Superior who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent. Along the way, she has to deal with a young postulant who is experiencing "visions," sexual hysteria among her nuns, a sensitive schoolboy in need of mentoring, a mysterious nun visiting from the Mother House in Berlin, and a former suitor intent on luring her away from her vows.
