Max & Louie Productions presents the first show of its fifth season – the St. Louis premiere of the groundbreaking dark comedy The Killing of Sister George by Frank Marcus. This hit British, comedic cult classic will be directed by Brooke Edwards, and stars Lavonne Byers, Erin Kelley, Shannon Nara, and Cooper Shaw.
Lusty, gin-swilling, cigar-chomping, lesbian, June Buckridge plays the beloved rural nurse, Sister George, the maternal heart and soul of the folksy BBC radio serial Applehurst. When studio executives decide to boost ratings and neutralize their difficult star’s public relations problems, the queen of the soaps finds her throne in jeopardy. The undercurrents pull June, her fragile younger companion, and a wily female BBC executive into a precarious minefield of mayhem and manipulation.
