Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More

Somehow Mr. Cosgrove must do something to make this show more lively. I am a fairly big fan of Mark Twain. I recognize that the show was reflective of Twain when he was in his later years, however, it was very hard to stay awake in the first half because it moved very slowly with lots of repetition. Having seen other one man shows of Mark Twain I can say that Bill is on the right track but he needs more spirit.
