OUR LADY OF 121st STREET

by | Read by Khandi Alexander, Emily Bergl, Laurence Fishburne, et al.

Poetry & Drama • 1.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2003

When a beloved Sister serving at a Brooklyn parish dies, her passing brings together a bevy of her now-grown former students and wards who experience her loss, in part, by confronting their feelings about their childhoods. Loaded with characters superbly portrayed by an energetic cast, and with each member grinding his or her personal ax very publicly, this crisply recorded play finds its characters ultimately resolving their issues. The miking allows the performers to explore their vocal and emotional ranges unfettered by the need to “fill the hall” with their voices. Fraught with anger and humor, passion and bewilderment, commitment and loss, OUR LADY brings listeners a place of emotional catharsis.
