Sister Dorothy, a 99-year-old nun, gets a shock when her prayers are disturbed by the sudden appearance of a “satanic” figure in her room; visiting Goth girl Jessica. Jessica, who has arrived to pursue a school project, cheerfully assures Dorothy that she will not make it to her 100th birthday next week. But Sister Dorothy has a shock of her own in store for Jessica, as well as her wacky chums Nelly and Phyllis, and snobby rest home owner Maxine. Not only does she intend to make it to her birthday, the nun declares that her one wish is to get married on the big day. Everyone is puzzled by who she has in mind for a bridegroom but Dorothy insists she has faith that it will all end well. Even the formidable Mother Superior Pat is unable to dissuade the errant nun. Dorothy knows exactly who she has in mind to marry, and it all goes back to her long-cherished memories of Aditya, the handsome young chai wallah (tea seller) she met in India in 1938.  All of which means the madcap antics of this sparkling comedy end in a surprising and utterly romantic twist.  CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS: SISTER DOROTHY: Dorothy is a nun who is turning 100 (seems more like a healthy 60 though) years old on Thursday. Serene, resolute, kind. Dorothy was a missionary in India in the late 1930’s when she was in her 20’s. Dorothy lives in the rest home due to a shortage of beds at her convent. MAXINE: The stressed out ambitious rest home manager struggling to bring respect and success to her business. Somewhat snobby, but not chic. 30's - 40's. JESSICA: A spirited, fun loving, brash gothic 16-year-old high school student who has chosen Dorothy as the focus of her social study project. Jessica is upbeat and endearing. CHAI WALLAH (Aditya): A street tea seller (preferably Indian heritage) in his 20’s who made a powerful impression on Sister Dorothy when she was a young Nun in India in the 1930’s. NELLY: In her 80’s Nelly is Dorothy’s friend and fellow rest home, resident. She was the first female editor of the National Conspirator newspaper. Nelly has survived three bucket lists and is now living each day for the immediate enjoyment it can deliver. Brash, fun-loving and spirited. PHYLLIS: Another resident and Nelly’s right-hand woman. In her 80’s and formerly a hospital nurse and Avon cosmetics saleswoman. Her memory is not what it once was, and she often falls asleep when the topic of conversation moves away from her. MOTHER PAT: The Mother Superior of Dorothy’s convent. A domineering and devout woman in her 50’s. A strong Irish accent is encouraged but optional. KUSHLA: One-half of the fabulous Taj Mahal Wedding Planners Company. Highly fashionable, efficient, and professional. Can be aged between 20 and 50 years old. RAPHAEL: The other fabulous member of the Taj Mahal Wedding Planners Company. Also highly fashionable, efficient, and professional... but also very highly strung. Can be aged between 20 and 50 years old.
