Accusations, mistaken identities, and romances run wild in this traditional, laugh-out-loud farce. Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent's doors open, but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancees, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition 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.

Sister Philamena 20-50’s
One of the three nuns who lives at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing. She has secretly been making and selling wine with Sister Augusta for years in order to prevent the convent from being shut down for lack of income. She is dedicated to her calling. Can’t tell a lie. Nervous.
Sister Augusta 20-50’s
One of the three nuns who lives at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing. She has secretly been making and selling wine with Sister Augusta for years in order to prevent the convent from being shut down for lack of income. She is dedicated to her calling. Brains behind the operation. Bold.
A sweet, good-natured groundskeeper. He has friendly relationships with the nuns and helps them harvest grapes although he isn’t in on the secret. George doesn’t always get the joke and is easily persuaded.
Mother Superior 40-50’s
She’s in charge of the convent and leader to the nuns who work there. Highly devoted to her convent and even willing to break the rules to keep it safe. She hates alcohol and especially hates wine. Worried about being shut down by secret spies sent from the Vatican.
Reporter. Hopelessly in love with his ex-fiance and co-worker, Sally. Willing to put himself through anything to be with her even after she left him at the altar. Paul’s conscience exceeds his drive to be successful.
Quick witted, professionally driven reporter who works closely with her ex-fiance whom she left at the altar. Driven by her career, she puts her romantic life aside. “One of the guys” type.
Sister Mary Catherine 20's
A timid and genuine novice pretending to be a nun only with permission from her previous superior. She follows orders and keeps her status secret while she tries to blend in at the convent.
Father Chenille 40-50’s
Priest of a neighboring church. He is patient and understanding, and a bit clumsy.
