Grand ConcourseMAR 3 - APR 1
Written by Heidi Schreck
Directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary
Called to a life of religious service, Shelley now struggles to find meaning in her work as the manager of a Bronx soup kitchen. The arrival of Emma, a college dropout looking for a sense of purpose, is at first a welcome addition, but the girl’s erratic behavior soon pushes Shelley to the breaking point, in this compelling drama about the mysteries of faith, forgiveness, and compassion.
RUN TIME: Approx. 1 hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
