A tyrannical nun wielding a lightsaber has unspeakable power over Jake Wyskalker.
She is from the dark side … of the Catholic Church. Her emperor is the archbishop. And Jake … may be her son.
It’s goofy but hilarious. Brent Hartinger’s comedy play “Nun Wars” brings the force to the closing weekend of the 13th annual South Sound Playwrights Festival.
Hartinger is a published novelist whose works are light but never lightweight. “Nun Wars” is a silly, good-natured skit, but it also portrays a grown man struggling to let go of his childhood anger at the church and, maybe, find some semblance of God. That’s a lot to accomplish in 15 funny minutes.
