Fermín Cabal and Pedro Almodóvar
Dark Habits (Entre tinieblas)
Translated by Rick Hite

Based on the film by Pedro Almodóvar, this play involves the peculiar shenanigans of a company of nuns who are trying to keep their Madrid convent from closing down for want of drug addicted clients to serve. A dark comedy which covers the territory from the farcical to the tender, from the engagingly serious to the disturbingly perverse.

Single set:two acts.
8 Women (N.Y. staging used 8 Men) (Ages from late teens to 60's)

Spanish premiere: Segovia, 19 June 1992. Dir. Fermín Cabal.
U. S. premiere: American Theater of Actors, NYC, 1996. Dir. Angel Gil Orrios.
