Our Lady of 121st Street

Our Lady of 121st Street by Stephen Adly Guirgis

BOVTS, 2018


The Ortiz Funeral Home 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, neighbourhood denizens, trying to find a place to put their grief, checkered pasts and their uncertain futures. This is a dark, insightful, very funny play, where this mixed bunch inevitable square-off on each other, motivated by rage, pain and a scary desire to come clean – perhaps for the first time.
