“As the creator of Late Nite Catechism, Vicki Quade knows a thing or two about what makes a one-person show successful,” says the Pioneer Press, Chicago.
Quade calls the show “a funny look at fundraising.”
“If you're familiar with Quade's funny stage style, you probably realize her angry (yet good-hearted and humorous) nuns share their opinions with laughing audiences whether they want to hear them or not,” says Phil Potempa, of The Times of Northwest Indiana.
In 1993, Vicki Quade brought to life an idea for a one woman show that would become the hit comedy, Late Nite Catechism, which has been running in Chicago since 1993 and turned into a national and international hit, with productions in more than 150 cities.
Since, she has written several other comedies, including: Put the Nuns in Charge!, Sunday School Cinema, and Saints & Sinners, which have enjoyed national productions. She also has a new holiday show, Mother Superior’s Ho-Ho-Holy Night.
In addition, each of Quade’s shows is used to raise much needed retirement funds for orders of nuns throughout the country. Through her comedies, Quade has helped raise more than $2 million in donations to various orders of nuns nationwide.
For her work raising awareness of the plight of retired Sisters, Vicki Quade received the Spirit of Benedict Award in 2003 from the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago, and, in 2005, she was given a Partners in Mission Award by the Sisters of the Living Word in Arlington Heights, IL. She was honored in 2009 by the Sisters of Providence in Indiana for donations to that order.
