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 virtuoso Ms. Friedman offers a birds-eye view of a tiny cloistered world. And as the multitude of vividly imagined characters burst out of this slight performer, the narrator herself begins to fade into the background, lost in the colorful background of the creepy story, the kind that kids tell around a campfire. It’s a clever trick in a play with many.” —The New York Times
“Calling Friedman’s cracked-mirror performance virtuoso is hardly adequate.” —Seattle Times
Slipping between the psychological and the supernatural, The K of D, an urban legend follows skinny Charlotte McGraw, who develops a set of lethal lips after sharing her twin brother’s dying kiss. Or so people say. Acclaimed actress Renata Friedman tears between over a dozen different characters in this hilariously dark urban legend about a lonely girl and her deadly skill.
