At the turn of the 20th century, legendary French actress Sarah Bernhardt is booked to perform in Quebec City, but her performance is banned by the Catholic Church. The Archbishop sends two seminarians to deliver a letter to the controversial 'Divine Sarah' forbidding her to perform. The young men are swept up in the momentum of the theatrical superstar’s visit and their lives are forever changed by the encounter. A compelling new play about the power of art in our lives, the horrors of censorship, lies and secrets, the destruction of innocence, and the oppression of the Church in early 1900s. Directed by Ed Herendeen.
