ABOUT THE PLAY: Mark, Finn, and Joe are juniors at Holy Apostle High, where religion class is not quite as interesting as their various crushes on teachers and each other. But there are deeper secrets bubbling under the surface, and when the boys learn about Catholic Mystics, Mark wonders if that might explain the strange things he’s been seeing and hearing… A show for anyone who has had a crush on a teacher, questioned the existence of God, or survived high school (preferably with soul intact).
