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

“Savvy, droll and deliciously caustic” —Variety
Using Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece A Doll’s House as a springboard, award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman has crafted a bold and insightful adaptation that transports Ibsen’s classic into 21st century suburbia. With a happily-ever-after ending that is as audacious today as Ibsen’s original was over a century ago, Gilman’s _Dollhouse _raises questions about women and financial independence, marriage and motherhood, and how keeping up with the Joneses may be setting us behind.
