Living in Sin

Orthodoxy meets pillow talk. Uhhhhh, yikes.

Hopelessly Devoted Heads to Capital!

Debuting at the Capital Fringe Festival:
Two Catholics. One ridiculous attempt at salvation.

Making its Washington, DC debut, Vincent Lacey and Natalie Sullivan proudly present Hopelessly Devoted, a Catholic-inspired comedy straight out of the Confessional.

Natalie Sullivan and Vincent Lacey are an anomaly in the comedy community: non-ironic religious believers. Godless heathens be warned: this show packs 50+ combined years of real Catholic living into 50 minutes. Scenes, songs and confessions testify to the experiences of two devout fish in a sea of pessimism. Bursting with the guilt...err…love of Christ, Devoted reconciles the Catholic faith with the functions of living—one sin, one virtue, one misguided prayer at a time.

Catholic New World calls it an "enlighteningly funny" show that "doesn't shy away from squeamish moments...that make for gems in a comedy show." TimeOut Chicago says, "Lacey and Sullivan take their religious beliefs to task with revealing monologues and dramatic reenactments of family members embarrassing themselves at church."

In this lovingly irreverent romp through the mind of two young Catholics, nothing sacred shall be left behind.

Hopelessly Devoted now lives here

Hopelessly Devoted is the show-baby of Vinnie Lacey and Natalie Sullivan. They were raised Catholic and loved several seconds of it. Between the two of them, this show is 52 years in the making and bursting with the love of Christ!
