Auditions: Our Lady of 121st Street

March 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

The Ortiz Funeral Home is in big trouble: The body of beloved community activist and nun Sister Rose has been stolen from the viewing room, and waiting for her proper return are some of New York City’s most emotionally charged, life-challenged neighborhood denizens, trying to find a place to put their grief, checkered pasts, and their uncertain futures. The crowd of twelve hilarious and tragic characters in this dark, insightful comedy inevitably square off with each other, motivated by rage, pain and a scary desire to come clean—perhaps for the first time.
