Photos: Inside Opening Night of THE SAINTLINESS OF MARGERY KEMPE

Perry Street Theatricals and Jonathan Demar in association with Frederick M. Zollo and Diane Procter present The Saintliness of Margery Kempe by John Wulp, which opened just last night at New York City's The Duke on 42nd Street (located on 229 West 42nd Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues).

Based on the incredible life of 14th century English mystic Margery Kempe and inspired by The Book of Margery Kempe, considered by many to be one of the first autobiographies in the English language, The Saintliness of Margery Kempe is a comedic tale about one woman's quest to define life by her own means in a world that was otherwise dominated by men. A uniquely funny, moving and thought-provoking play, The Saintliness of Margery Kempe chronicles the journey of a woman ahead of her time as she aspires to saintliness, while embarking on the travels she took throughout her incredible life.

The production stars Drama League Award-nominee Andrus Nichols, who received critical praise for her performance in Bedlam's productions of Saint Joan and Sense & Sensibility as well as her portrayal of Beatrice in Center Theatre Group's production of Ivo van Hove's Tony and Olivier Award-winning revival of A View From The Bridge, in the title role of Ms. Kempe. She is joined on stage by Vance Quincy Barton, LaTanya Borsay, Timothy Doyle, Michael Genet, Ginger Grace, Jason O'Connell, Pippa Pearthree and Thomas Sommo under the direction of Austin Pendleton.
