The Amen Corner ~ Shaw Festival ~ Festival Theatre
July 30 ~ October 8, 2023
James Baldwin’s searing drama of love and hate plays out in an evangelical church in Harlem. A teenage musical prodigy has to choose between his mother, the pastor and choir leader of the church, and his washed-up father with whom he shares a passion for jazz. Meanwhile his mother is finding that a community dedicated to Christian love and support is capable of terrible bitterness and cruelty. This special production features rousing songs performed by a gospel choir.
