The Nun goes to Edinburgh!

Purple Hare Theatre Company is taking Nun On The Run! to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2020! Nathalie will be performing every day from August 7th to August 29th in Theatre 1 in the Space @ Surgeons Hall.

We are incredibly excited by our upcoming adventure in Scotland and cannot wait to take this beautiful play to one of the biggest Theatre festivals in the world.

But we need your help! We will be applying for subventions and are hoping to sell out  of course (!), but in the meantime we need to front all the costs (Travel, Transport, Accomodation, Tech, Venue, Marketing, Fringe Registration, etc).

Thank you SO MUCH for your help,

Nathalie and the Purple Hare Team


Nun On The Run!

"Sister Clarissa has grown somewhat tired of her marriage to Christ. Seeking innocent thrills, she starts a Pen Pal for Prison Inmates programme from her convent. Soon caught between God and a dangerous outlaw in the world's oddest love triangle, she must now choose between love and freedom..."

Conor Duffy's NUN ON THE RUN! is a light-hearted comedy that takes the audience through the struggles between spirituality and earthly desires, while exploring the different meanings of love. It puts into light the humanity of those who have dedicated their lives to God but remain humans, passionate, impulsive, and susceptible to succumb to love at first sight.
