Description

Two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee Kathleen Turner triumphantly returns to San Francisco in the most critically-acclaimed performance of her career. A favorite among San Francisco theatre-goers, Turner has previously delighted audiences in such productions as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. And now, Turner brings her most compelling performance to the Curran Theatre for one week only.

When Sister Jamison Connolly (Turner) agrees to sponsor a 19-year-old drug user in an effort to help him combat his addiction, her own faith is ultimately tested. Struggling between the knowledge she possesses as a rehabilitation counselor and a woman of religious conviction, she begins to question her belief in miracles and whether people can find the courage to change. High explores the universal themes of truth, forgiveness, redemption and human fallibility.
