Production Description
The Saintliness of Margery Kempe follows the true-life misadventures of the famed English woman of the 14th Century. She begins her career by throwing her lot in with the Devil and buying a brewery. When this doesn’t work out, she decides to become a saint instead, although she has none of the qualifications for the job!

The legendary Austin Pendleton directs this comical and amazingly timely play. The creative team includes playwright and scenic designer John Wulp, lighting designers Jennifer Tipton and Matthew Richards, costume designer Barbara Bell, with original music and sound design by Ryan Rumery. Andrus Nichols, who starred in Bedlam's Sense & Sensibility and earned raves for her portrayal in the title role of Bedlam's acclaimed production of Saint Joan, takes on the role of the less-than-saintly Margery Kempe.
