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

Freshwater Theatre Company is proud to present The Book of Liz by acclaimed writer David Sedaris and his sister, actress and writer Amy Sedaris, starring Mame Pelletier and directed by Scot Moore at the new Nimbus Theatre in northeast Minneapolis!
Sister Elizabeth (Liz) Donderstock (of the Squeamish colony) is about to be squeezed out of her life’s work – making world class cheese balls that almost single-handedly fund the colony. Her midlife version of Rumspringa and her colony’s attempts to cope with her absence paint the backdrop for this smart comedy by the brilliant brother/sister duo of David and Amy Sedaris.
