"What style! What intensity! James Baldwin is a marvel!"- John Cheever

This rediscovered American masterpiece, written by the legendary African-American author James Baldwin, is a powerful drama filled with gospel music. Set in a small Harlem church, the play tells the story of Sister Margaret, the pastor, who faces problems within her family and her congregation when her estranged husband shows up at her door after a ten-year absence. This moving play examines issues of faith, family, and forgiveness, and is filled with music and language that will stir your soul.
