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

The play "A Man for All Seasons" was fantastic. They did a great job bringing the story of St Thomas More to life. The actors were high quality and they were able to do much with very little props. The story was believable and I think we were all crying by the end. I have seen the movie and it was very similar. The only thing I was dissapointed about was they didn't include my favorite line from the movie: "I am the King's good servant, but God's first!"
This production’s approximate running time is 2 hours and 20 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission.
There’s a concession counter with food and drink for purchase.
