OUR LADIES of Perpetual Succour is The National Theatre of Scotland's second visit to the Galway International Arts Festival and a raucously entertaining affair it is too.
Adapted by Lee Hall from Alan Warner’s 1998 novel The Sopranos, the play follows a group of teenage convent schoolgirls from Oban on a day trip to Edinburgh for a school choir contest. It quickly becomes clear that the nuns have had little or no impact on these lassies’ world views.
