About the Show:  Vera, a vivacious and possibly lost woman, is contemplating becoming a Catholic nun but has never considered celibacy one of her virtues. Her situation is complicated by the onset of visions and rapturous prayers. As her story unfolds piece by piece, Vera shares stories of other women's experiences exploring the connection between the body, the spirit, and sexuality. Vera interacts with the audience as they become characters from her past and saints in her preset. Will Vera enter the religious life or abandon it for something better?  

The Holy O is a one-woman show that borders between interactive and immersive theatre. Vera's journey is interwoven with stories inspired by interviews with dozens of women and female-identifying people.

​Total run time: approximately 60 minutes.

This play is not suitable for children.
