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

Theatre Coup d’Etat’s production of _Macbeth _will require an ensemble effort, built with a high level of energy and performances that will be physically demanding.
At the heart of the show will be a process known as Animal Work. The purpose of the animal work is to enhance the instincts and impulses of the actor by cultivating the primal side that we all have but few of us acknowledge. This will work in conjunction with our company mission: to provoke an emotional and analytical response in our audiences by showing the depth of the human condition through both classical and contemporary works.
After all Macbeth is a story about a human being, not a portrait of a psychopath.
