"I Laugh To Keep From Crying" is a solo show written and performed by Becca Beberaggi and directed by Laurel Andersen. The story centers around Roselina Albino a girl who is trying to get you to take over her lease, only problem is Nuns live here too! Part heartfelt coming up age story part brash craigslist ad, Roselina takes you through the do's and don'ts of the nunnery, which Nun's to watch out for, and why this is the best place she's ever lived. We cover Daddy Issue's, Medical Crisis's (Like using WEBMD to diagnose diseases), and how that journey to self love is never really ending.
