Once a Catholic – at Tricycle Theatre

“Willesden, 1957. A convent girls’ school. Bad habits ... and boys.

“The nuns at Our Lady of Fatima preach chastity and diligence as the swinging sixties approach. Final exams loom. The day of reckoning is nigh. But for the girls in class 5A, their last year in uniform is set to be one of discovery of the less holy kind ...” – from the Tricycle Theatre website

Please purchase your own ticket direct from the theatre. If you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.

If you would like to meet as a group for a drink in the theatre bar before the play, let me know in the comments – I will circulate details in the days before the play.

    Enjoyable play. True not so,shocking as it once was and rather hammy in places, still much to amuse and engage. Not being a catholic girl myself it's also illuminating about what went on

    A very energetic and well-acted production and quite elaborately staged (a lot of efficient furniture setting and removal). Although it was still funny, the play, written in 1977 and set in the mid-fifties, is no longer a biting satire.

    you can usually get returns on the day; worth phoning the theatre and asking them about it perhaps..

    If you cant make it before but want a drink/chat after the show I will stand in the same meeting place afterwards. It finishes at 9.45 so there is sufficient time. We will most likely be making our way to our seats by 7.20 so unfortunately if you are later than that are unlikely to meet you till afterwards.

    Please make a note of my mobile in case you cannot find me! [masked]

    The Tricycle states that "Food is available before most theatre performances and our menu includes Jerk Chicken, Fillet of Fish and Spinach & Chickpea Curry, each served with Rice & Peas or Plain Rice, Salad or Coleslaw, and all for just £7."

    I am booked in B9. There arent any seats left next to me I am afraid.

    Let us meet up opposite the Main Theatre/Cinema Box Office - there are seats there. Walk through the Bar to the side exit and its just there. They do food too which is quite nice, if a restricted menu.

    Will be there from about 6.45.

    Sounds irresistible... Must work on my confession.. Just what's needed for the new year!

    November 2

  • Richard C.

    Oh yes! Having been 'once a Catholic' and for two years a Jesuit novice and now a happy atheist I must see this as I have never seen it. I will be happy to hear confessions before the show!
