INDIANA---For 16 years, Nancy Murray — an Adrian Dominican nun and the sister of comedic actor Bill Murray — has traveled worldwide to perform her play St. Catherine of Siena: A Woman for Our Times. This weekend, she will share her art at Marian University Theatre. Murray will present the role of the 14th-century Italian Dominican teenager known for her constant service to the needy and sick and her fervent letter-writing, 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Murray has enjoyed acting and production since she was a theater major at Barry University in the mid-1960s. The IndyStar had a moment to speak with Murray about her rendition of the play and what she calls her "migrant ministry."[link]
