A Saint not for the Faint of Heart.
God's Gypsy is a bold, sexy and humanizing portrait of the 16th century mystic who became one of the most controversial reformers of the Catholic Church. Spoiled with beauty and riches, Teresa was sent to a convent as a young girl to learn discipline, but instead discovered an unparalleled spiritual fervor.
Adapted for the stage from Mujica's painstakingly researched novel, "Sister Teresa", Teresa's days of youthful romance, secret Jewish ancestry, cloak-and-dagger
political dealings during the Spanish Inquisition, and fits of spiritual rapture unfold in a riveting account of sisterhood, faith, and the miracle of salvation through one woman's personal relationship with God.
Recommended for ages 14+ due to adult themes and mature content.
