Our Lady of 121st Street, A Dramatic Dark Comedy, at Theatre 68
Theatre 68 (Hollywood, CA)
The funeral of Sister Rose Marie, an alcoholic religious disciplinarian, brings together twelve outrageously diverse flawed Harlem characters in this acclaimed play by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Sister Rose Marie may have been a mean drunk of an Irish nun schoolteacher, but she caused her former students to examine the many lessons they’ve learned from her as they struggle against the tide of their lives, sometimes succeeding, sometimes failing, in doing the right thing. And there’s one other complication: somebody has stolen the body.
