When She Says Jump...

Sister Jamison Connelly has been instructed by her superior, Father Michael Delpapp, to serve as sobriety counselor to Cody, a young man who has legal problems that rival his drug problems — and his drug problems are epic. Cody was found in a cruddy motel room bed with a dead fourteen-year old boy, but was so high at the time that it's doubtful he's the killer. Sister Jamison, a recovering alcoholic who knows something of life on the street, quickly realizes that Cody's commitment to rehab is more a commitment to self-preservation at any cost. Tough and plainspoken — some might say "crude" — Sister Jamison wields her faith and her willpower like a hammer, battering away at Cody's jaded exterior only to find something more horrible underneath. Matthew Lombardo's High is a scorching examination of faith and change, and how some people want nothing to do with either. High stars Kathleen Turner as Sister Jamison, and it continues its pre-Broadway run with performances at the Repertory Theatre of Saint Louis Tuesday through Sunday (October 13 through November 7) at the Browning Mainstage in the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-968-4925 or www.repstl.org). Tickets are $15 to $70.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 13. Continues through Nov. 7, 2010
