The Killing of Sister George

By Frank Marcus
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by & Starring Kathleen Turner
On the Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Theatre
November 28 – December 23, 2012

By day June Buckridge, played by Kathleen Turner, plays Sister George on the hit BBC radio show Applehurst, tending to the sick and poor.  By night, she chews on cigars, swills gin and lets nothing and no one stand in her way, including her long suffering “secretary” Childie. When Applehurst’s ratings plummet, the show’s producers decide to kill off Sister George in the hope of recapturing the audience.  In real life, June refuses to go quietly from her starring perch in this bawdy and witty comedy. Tony and Academy Award-nominee Kathleen Turner (Serial Mom, Romancing the Stone, Peggy Sue Got Married, and on stage in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) returns to Long Wharf Theatre in this classic farce.
