A sequel to Seven Nuns at Las Vegas. "It is with a full-throated shout of pure delight that we can announce Natalie White is up to her old tricks with a new farce, an exciting and exhilarating Mexican holiday. The play rolls along as though it had been written by the characters themselves. The inevitable miracle pops up at the very beginning and it's fascinating to watch the characters develop it into such a casual and plausible experience that it becomes absolutely believable." —St. Leo Publications. "It is a timely farce written in a spirit of timeless religion…mirthful and moving." —The New World. "…a romping hegira full of merry guimped spirits and flights of sublime laughter…a new dimension of the ethereal blended with the farcical." —Catholic Theatre.
