Part of The New Play Development Series

Sister Catherine is dead – the body of the young nun washed up on shore, an apparent victim of suicide. This event sparks the action of the full-length play, Faithfall. In a single, continuous scene, Sister Catherine’s estranged sister, Whitney, waits to claim the personal items bequeathed to the family. She is met by Father Michael, the Priest who works with the late Sister Catherine. While these strangers navigate each other, we learn of Sister Catherine's dark past and her actions that drove a wedge between her and Whitney. Whitney’s exposure of Gwen’s past leads Michael to protect the person he had come to know, exposing his own vulnerabilities. What starts as a simple request turns into a deep debate about forgiveness, grief, faith, and the status of Sister Catherine’s soul.
