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

Anything Frank Theatre does is going to be AT LEAST very good. This show is excellent, disturbing and draining. It is not a "feel good" show. But, if you want to be challenged and engrossed, this just may be the show for you. Parking is a little bit of a pain on the West Bank. There is a parking ramp that I think is a little pricey. If you want to walk, you can park across 35 at a meter.
This play contains strong language and is recommended for children ages 16 and older.
Enda Walsh wrote the book for the musical Once.
Thomas Magill is played by John Catron, who was recently featured in the Guthrie Theatre’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, and previously seen at Frank Theatre in Metamorphosis and By The Bog of Cats.
