SECOND TO NUN

Book and Lyrics by Anton Dudley
Music by Michael Cooper

A present-day cabaret bar welcomes Canadian saint Marguerite Bourgeoys to relive her death-defying journey (The Black Plague! Iroquois scalpers! Randy French soldiers!) to free women from the cloister and bring a liberated, feminine education to New France. A one woman musical about the power of faith, the persistence of invention, and the importance of staying true to your calling, even when you’re the only one who hears it.
