This satire of Catholic school life in the 1960's uses four actresses to play the nuns and the first through eighth grade girls at St. George's School in Yonkers. As they experience bonds of friendship, reprimands from authority figures and pressures from home and they react to the Beatles, the Addams Family, the Supremes and the election of a Catholic president, an amusing portrait of girls maturing to the threshold of adolescence delightfully emerges. Between classroom scenes monologues give free rein to the students' decidedly secular ambitions.
