This witty one-man show follows a conflicted young guy into a fascinating environment — a Canadian seminary, where would-be priests live and study (and use the f-word!) before they’re ordained.

Likable Calgary writer-actor Bob Legare, a one-time seminarian, explores the inner struggle of a hero who isn’t sure if he’s got the right priestly stuff, and tends to rely on the lyrics of Trooper for guidance.

Shifting among a host of characters, including several women, Legare isn’t quite actor enough to give each a clear identity. But the one-hour story is funny, engaging and even sensitive, particularly when the hero befriends a gay man or interacts with an attractive nun.

The show’s unforgivable sin is that it’s studded with horribly amateurish songs. Legare is an unsteady singer and an awkward mover who should take a solemn vow to never, ever attempt musical theatre again.

— Alison Mayes
 

From the official Fringe program:

SEX, LUST, POWER. And a hot Nun?

A zany, musical romp through the magical, mystical world of the Seminary and the tortured Catholic mind of our Hero, who is headed on a collision course with the ultimate choice.

Celibacy. There's No Life Like It!
