Oh, we of little faith. Meet Theresa, a former wild girl turned freelance maid who has been struck with the surprising desire to learn how to pray. She tries to learn how from Matthew, a faithful priest who has been struck with the realization that he is no longer able to pray, and so he runs to his long-suffering mother Colleen – a woman who can’t not be a hostess. Pack in Theresa’s daughter, Abby, a classic troubled teen whose motto seems to be apathy and shock value (no surprises there), and Garrett, the grocer’s son who likes long walks with a flask.

“Kate Fodor’s achingly truthful drama discerns the faint outlines of hope in a universe of lost connections.” – Time Out

Vancouver’s Pacific Theatre is proud to present its season finale, Kate Fodor’s 100 Saints You Should Know, developed by Chicago’s renowned Steppenwolf Theatre. This is a tale of five souls attempting a relatively simple task: to live life being true to the person they were meant to be. Turns out it’s not that simple.

Featuring an ensemble cast of both emerging and bright new actors, 100 Saints You Should Know is directed by award-winning Anthony F. Ingram, who quipped, “It’s tons of fun working with actors who are at the beginning of the career and so full of talent and potential. I’m starting to realize I’m a veteran of the stage – what a thought!”
