Our Next Production - A Letter from The General by Maurice McLoughlin - directed by Linda O'Byrne
The time is 1950 and the place is a Far Eastern country. A violent revolution has brought chaos and all foreigners are being imprisoned, even shot. The five nuns at the mission are waiting to hear their fate, fearing they may have to leave, but with one slight hope of reprieve. The General of the Army was once an orphan boy at the mission and the elderly Sister Magdalene is his godmother. She has written for his help. But before he can reply, visitors arrive. The British Consul and his wife and a troop of soldiers, led by the vicious Captain Lee, who is hunting for a German priest who has escaped the General’s prison.
