The play was held in our school and it turns out to be the talk in the campus for almost a whole month already. The story follows the funny life of a nun, Sister Miriam.

The Irrepressible Sister Miriam

Have we ever wondered what it feels like to be a nun or a priest? They were considered to be God’s instrument to guide us to the right path. However, they also have burdens on their own and are greater than normal beings but they need to be strong to show us the real work of faith. “The irrepressible Sister Miriam” shows a life of a nun with mix of comedy, romance and music. It was based on Mr. Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero’s work and was directed by Dr. Rebekah M. Alawi. This was also held at the UVS of MSU-Main Campus on August 11-15, 2014 around 10:00-12:00am and 3:00-5:00pm.
Irrepressible means impossible to restrain or control thus the tittle simply means the Nun who can’t be controlled or the Naughty nun. Sister Miriam is a nun with a very funky personality; she defies expectation of her superior and had some rebellious side. Her ideas are too much for others to take seriously however despite of it she always made her company happy every time she’s around. Sister Juliana, on the other hand, is acting as the right hand of Mother superior and she always report every failure Sister Maria commits. Mother Superior then scolded Sister Miriam and gives her punishment to atone for her sin. But Mother Superior hides her affection towards Father V coming into rival with Mother Angela, the visitor of their convent. In the later part of the story it was found out that despite of her smile and laughter she also did carries a heavy burden that is opposite to what she is showing.
The Actors and Actresses of the play are all excellent in both pronunciation and delivery. They are all putting their shoes on the character creating a magnificent play. The main character, Prof. Bai Salam M. Ibrahim as Sister Miriam, was also a great performer and was able to connect with the audience making every one break out into laughter. There are a lot of twists in the story and many appreciated how the “talong”(eggplant) played a great role in the plot. The idea of a musical play kept the performance alive and the hanging microphones was also great. As the play ended, the audiences who are leaving are all having two thumbs up expression and a smile on their faces.
