A dramatic production by Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, directed by Goodman Theatre and WBTT resident director Chuck Smith. For years, Sister Margaret Alexander has inspired her Harlem congregation with a mixture of personal charisma and ferocious piety. But when Margaret’s estranged husband, a scapegrace jazz musician, comes home to die, she is in danger of losing both her standing in the church and the son she has tried to keep on the godly path. The Amen Corner is a play about faith and family, about the gulf between black men and black women and black fathers and black sons. The Amen Corner is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC. Tickets are $45/adults, $20/students and active military.
