Sister Bernie D’Amato is a force to be reckoned with. After thirty years running a women’s center in a New Jersey slum she’s won battles with priests, police and even gang leaders. But now she’s facing her biggest threat yet.

With property developers buying up the neighborhood, and only an ageing ex-nun and a 16-year-old X-Factor wannabe to help, Bernie’s mission to save the center is becoming ever more of a challenge.

Playwright Brian Mullin was selected from over 800 applicants to join the 503Five Writer-in-Residence scheme. His debut drama is a frank and wry portrait of modern feminism, friendship and one extraordinary woman, determined to take on the world.
