Don't miss the culmination of Penguins

by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

Penguins 5: Mea Maxima Culpa, Baby
Annex Theatre
Through August 26


On August 26 at 11 p.m., you'll have the final opportunity to see the final episode in Scot Augustson's wacky, subversive church parody with gun-toting nuns squaring off against priests, and sex galore - illicit and even illegal - behind the cloisters.

Mea Maxima Culpa, Baby includes exorcisms, conspiracies, Lesbian love, historical secrets revealed, and more of the caustic comedy that's brought this late-night serial acclaim!

Starting in 2009 with Heaven the Hard Way, Augustson introduced Sister Bernadette (played by the inimitable Lisa Viertel), who is dead but not really, in a deadly feud with Father Jones (Chris Dietz), who is aided by his dangerously schizoid sidekick Placido (Clayton Weller). Adding to the mayhem are Sister Mimi Koko (Jenny Schmidt), who loves Sister Jenny Memphis (Sophie Lowenstein), who has to have everything explained to her, and Sister Candy (Jillian Vashro), who is in love with Father Luke (Daniel Christensen).

Episode 3: The Bishop's Bastard introduced the organist's son, Adam, who isn't the organist's son (he's the child of Father Jones), and in Episode 4: Suffer the Children, Adam (Katie Driscoll) is suddenly all grown up, soap opera style (though not yet 18), and having an affair with Sister Bernadette's mother, Connie (Maggie Ferguson-Wagstaffe)! Then he finds out that Connie is actually his mother (ew!) and they try to stay apart, but can't. Connie, presumably menopausal, then turns up pregnant. Candy gets pregnant from Father Luke, and Placido prophesizes their babies mean the end of the world.

Penguins 5 picks up with Connie and Sister Candy, very pregnant, deciding that they need to leave town and start a new life. Adam, Father Luke, and Placido hit the road to find them. We learn exactly why Sister Bernadette hates priests. She sends Sisters Jenny Memphis and Mimi Koko on a mission to kill any collar they find. A strange painting by da Vinci has the power to overturn church teachings all the way, including a missing piece of Jesus' identity! Oh, and there's a nuclear bomb, of course.

Will the world end? Is it the babies' fault? What happens at the diner? Will Placido ever find 'de love'? What has that got to do with a telephone booth inside the church? This is perfect for summer fun.
