A one-woman play based on the life of 19th century nun Mother Joseph....

...the Sister of Providence who built 16 hospitals and clinics, 12 schools and two orphanages out of the Northwest wilderness during the second half of the 1800s. ...Tucker is not alone in touting the nun's accomplishments. In 1980, a bronze statue of Mother Joseph was placed among the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall collection, and in 1999 Vancouver schoolchildren successfully lobbied the Legislature to designate April 16 -- her birthday -- as Mother Joseph Day.
