Sister Bernard, a Cistercian nun of strict observance, has been confined to her cell.

Following the rigid structure of ‘The Liturgy of the Hours’, William Lyons’ play is a delightful, frank examination of the fragility of religious belief and of a religious vocation, as well as a contemplation on what happens to the ‘natural’ part of us when we give ourselves over to the supernatural.

‘All The Hours’ is a mischievous, funny, visceral monologue backed by an evocative psalm-chanting chorus.

Written by William Lyons

Directed by Adam Cass

Performed by a yet to be named legend of the La Mama stage, backed by a chorus.
