The Killing of Sister George

Author(s): Frank Marcus
Company: New Vic and Told by an Idiot

A much-loved character on Applehurst, the BBC soap opera, Sister George is a cheerful nurse who cycles around the countryside singing hymns and doing good. In reality, June Buckeridge, the actress who plays her, is a swaggering, foul-mouthed loose cannon who has very little in common with her radio persona.

Due to low ratings, cutbacks and June’s own bad behaviour, the BBC decides “Sister George” has to go…for good!

The Killing of Sister George is an iconic black comedy shot through with surprising moments of tenderness. Famously adapted into a film in 1968 with Beryl Reid in the title role, the New Vic and Told by an Idiot will bring to life this bittersweet play with a unique visual flair and an audacious blend of raucous humour and compelling drama.
