"Who Is Phoebe White?" is a new 2-act comedic play by creators Mark Hagan and Michael Carach (collectively MCHM).

Set in the snowy upstate Peek-A-Boo Mountains, "Who Is Phoebe White?" follows the lives of three nuns as they struggle to save a decaying Convent. Their seemingly innocent schemes to provide the Convent with much needed income, quickly spiral out of control. Through a series of comedic missteps, the Sisters soon realize that not everything is as it appears.

 
 
   
       

Synopsis

   
   
 

“That is award-winning Jam! A Blue Ribbon winner for sure!” To the Mother Superior, Uleberry Jam and Karka Bread are the only Divine combination needed to raise enough capital to revitalize the aging St. Mary, Mother of our Savior Holy Trinity Catholic Church and Sisterhood of the Tabernacle Superior Convent. To fellow residents, Sisters Agnes and Sister Laura, oddly-named jelly and exotic bread are hardly the blessed solution.


With the impending closure of the Convent quickly approaching and faced with an uncertain future, Sisters Agnes and Laura must find a way to stabilize the situation while counterbalancing everything ‘wrong’ that their Mother Superior is doing. This won’t be easy.


With the help of the Convent’s grounds keeper Ruby, the Sisters set out to devise a plan to help undo all of Mother Superior’s well-intentioned mistakes while simultaneously saving the Convent from closure. With the added pressure of marketing Ruby’s “medicinal herbs” to the parishioners as incense and potpourri while physically trying to outsmart the Convent’s new high-tech security system, it isn’t long before the Sister’s schemes quickly spiral out of control. This all comes to a frenetic head when an unwelcome raccoon takes up residence in the Convent.


Through a series of comedic missteps, the Sisters soon realize that not everything is as it appears. The miracle they’ve been waiting for has indeed already arrived in the form of an unknown but generous benefactor, leaving everyone to ask “Who is Phoebe White?”
