The Amen Corner
As the gospel singing soars, Sister Margaret, uncompromising pastor of her Harlem church, has a congregation already in revolt against her hardline leadership. Their resentment escalates with the return of her absentee husband, a trombone-playing sinner, and the wayward conduct of her son. Charges of hypocrisy hang in the air and Margaret’s devout world looks perilously close to falling apart.
Rufus directs a rare revival of James Baldwin's play examining faith and hypocrisy, starring Marianne Jean-Baptiste as Sister Margaret and with the London Community Gospel Choir providing support as the Church choir.
