The Delgado Community College Theatre Program announces their latest production, “Our Lady of 121st Street”by Stephen Adly Guirgis, winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
In the play, the Ortiz Funeral Room is in big trouble. The body of beloved community activist and nun Sister Rose has been stolen from the viewing room, and waiting for her proper return are some of New York City’s most emotionally charged, life-challenged inhabitants. Due to these extraordinary circumstances, the characters confront each other about their shared pasts and uncertain futures, resulting in a dark, insightful and funny comedy.
Please note that the production contains adult language and content.
“Our Lady of 121st Street”is directed by Kris LaMorte. The play will be performed by students from the Delgado Theatre Program.
The production staff includes scene design by James Means, lighting and sound design by Tom Dawson and costume design by Lindy Bruns.
