Somewhere between The Nun Story, Once A Catholic and Follies there is a little show with a big heart called Nunsense.

It follows the plight of a bunch of well meaning nuns who find themselves needing to raise funds for a deadly earnest cause. They decide to do this by way of exercising their showbusiness aspirations. So clasping Rosaries and microphones, Sisters Mary, Robert!, Mary, Mary and Mary take to the stage.

The show received "Best Musical" Outer Critic Circle Awards in 1986 and stars Honour Blackman, who came to world wide fame as "Pussy Galore" in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger", in one of her rare musical theatre outings.
