  • Marathon Community Theater presents: Drinking Habits
  • Website
  • Drinking Habits takes place during the early 1960s in the impoverished Oregon convent of the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing. Two nuns at the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Sewing’ have been secretly making wine in order to keep their poverty stricken convent afloat – behind the back of their alcohol-detesting Mother Superior. Unbeknownst to them, a local wine (theirs) has won a $500,000 award, and Paul and Sally, two newspaper reporters, who are ex-fiancés, are trying to discover the winning winery and break the story. The reporters go undercover as a nun and a priest, but their presence, combined with the arrival of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves. Show times 8 p.m.
