Pastor Margaret Alexander insists on living a purely religious life. Her duplicity is exposed and the relationships with her son and congregation are threatened with the arrival of her long-estranged husband.
Set in 1950’s Harlem, THE AMEN CORNER, is a classic play about the role of the Christian Church in the lives of African Americans both as a source of repression and moral hypocrisy and as a source of inspiration and community.
Under the direction of renowned director WALTER DALLAS, Tony Award® winners CHUCK COOPER, LILLIAS WHITE, and ADRIANE LENOX and a cast of brilliant actors and distinguished media personalities will bring the seminal work by author, playwright and activist JAMES BALDWIN to life.
