On this occasion it was Theatr Pena's presentation of Frank Marcus' 1965 play The Killing of Sister George at Newport Riverfront.
The black comedy looks at the demise of a long running character from a radio drama that is written out following the scandalous behaviour of the actress who played her when she assaults two nuns in a taxi cab.
The play which features undertones of abusive and lesbian relationships was sensationalised greatly for the big screen interpretation whereas this version is truer to its original stage counterpart.
