Trial of Mother Teresa PR

Heaven doesn’t happen all at once.
nimbus presents The Trial of Mother Teresa, a new play written by Dani Givens and directed by Liz Neerland

May 6, 2009

A cage-match for moralists, a Lincoln-Douglas debate for the faithful, a three-ring circus for doubters-all are contained within The Trial of Mother Teresa, written by nimbus alumna Dani Givens and directed by nimbus co-Artistic Director Liz Neerland. Outside of space and time, Mother Teresa and Joan of Arc meet for the first time. United by chance in a purgatorial limbo, the two women bond over their lives as religious icons. As they share their thoughts on faith and sainthood, the pair is judged by a panel of cardinals bent on either inquisition or canonization, whichever comes first. This incisive commentary explores faith, doubt, and politics while challenging our deepest beliefs about the nature of privacy in the age of publicity. The Trial of Mother Teresa will be presented May 29th through June 21st at the Minneapolis Theatre Garage, 711 W. Franklin Ave. in Minneapolis. Friday, May 29th – 8:00 pm Saturday, May 30th – 8:00 pm Sunday, May 31st – 3:00 pm Thursday, June 4th – 8:00 pm Friday, June 5th – 8:00 pm Saturday, June 6th – 8:00 pm Sunday, June 7th – 3:00 pm Monday, June 8th – 8:00 pm Thursday, June 11th– 8:00 pm Friday, June 12th – 8:00 pm Saturday, June 13th – 8:00 pm Sunday, June 14th – 3:00 pm Thursday, June 18th – 8:00 pm Friday, June 19th – 8:00 pm Saturday, June 20th – 8:00 pm Sunday, June 21st – 3:00 pm Tickets are $10 on Thursdays and Sundays, $15 on Fridays and Saturdays, and $18 for the opening night performance and gala.
