Black Robe

May as well be called Bleak Robe because it is from start to finish a huge downer. I appreciate the authenticity and the gravitas, but, man oh man! Nothing actually happy or good happens, even by Jesuit, 17th c. Jesuits, mind you, standards. Near the end, a character says, "They will very likely torture and kill us." After the preceding act, the only possible answer is, "Thank God!"
