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

Quotes & Highlights
“… director Lisa Peterson’s taut and insightful production finds the loose thread in Norris’ neatly woven comedy and by tugging just a bit on that thread, unravels something deeper than an exchange of coded (and not so coded) insults. She does so with a cast that is uniformly crisp and responsive, decked out distinctly in two eras by David Zinn’s costume scheme.” —Graydon Royce, Star Tribune
_"Clybourne Park _is the Guthrie at its best: drafting a team of the finest local actors and setting them loose on a sharp, challenging contemporary script. You’ll leave the theater talking, thinking, and maybe even laughing." —Jay Gabler, Twin Cities Daily Planet
