About the event

​​Limbo is Closed : Confessions of a Reluctant Catholic Girl

Born to a devout religious Mother, Marabeth Mcseveney, a young reluctant catholic girl tries to find her own spiritual connection and questions the religious fairytale. But when the devil shows up, all hell breaks loose, and she clings to the magic spell of the rosary…until it stops working. What will it take to actually tame the demons? Through hilarious and heartfelt solo storytelling, Marabeth will dive into the messy middle of the mother-child bond and the religious ties that bind.
