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

I believe this is one of the best performances I have ever attended! Even my 15-and-a-half year old son thought it was great. The singing, the acting and the staging were all of the highest caliber. The actors made the laughs effortless and frequent. But most of all, the poignant ending touched me on an emotional level. I will never forget the songs "Children Will Listen" and "No One Is Alone."
This production is recommended for ages 9 and up.
