ABOUT THE SHOW
Sister Elizabeth lives a sheltered existence making famously delicious cheese balls until she leaves her Squeamish society to make her way the world. Along the way she meets some colorful characters and has to make some important decisions that may effect the fate of the famous recipe. The answers to this and so many other questions can be found in this comedy from the Talent Family, David and Amy Sedaris.

TheatreNOW worked with other downtown Wilmington business owners in raising funds for ongoing relief efforts. We are offered a "Recovery Punch" cocktails with $5 of every drink sold going to the #OverFlo relief fund and raised $250. On Oct 27 we raised $130 for NourishNC at our annual Halloween edition of Super Saturday Fun Day show for kids. Many thanks for all our patrons who contributed to these ongoing relief efforts.
