Mistress of Novices by John Kerr
The play recounts the story of Bernadette and the miraculous vision she claims to have been granted, and also the conflict that this assertion causes in her relationship with the sceptical and strong-willed Mistress of Novices. Set mainly in the Convent of St Gildard, Nevrs, it follows the life of Bernadette until its agonised end, and closes with the announcement of Bernadette's canonization. Period mid-nineteenth to early twentieth century.
