Are you looking for an enjoyable night out at the theatre? If your answer is Yes, you might want to pop down to London’s National Theatre to see THE AMEN CORNER, which will open on 11 June.
The Amen Corner is a classic stage play, featuring a gospel music score, that is basedon a novel by American author, James Baldwin. It tells the story of Sister Margaret, the uncompromising pastor of a Harlem church, whose congregation are in revolt against her hardline leadership. Their resentment escalates when her absentee husband, a trombone-playing sinner, returns to the church, and is doubled by the wayward conduct of her formerly-paragon, musical son. Charges of hypocrisy hang in the air, and Margaret’s devout world looks perilously close to falling apart.
The cast of this classic production includes Eric Kofi Abrefa; Oscar-nominated actress, Marianne Jean-Baptiste; Sharon D Clarke, and singers of the London Community Gospel Choir. Rev Bazil Meade (pictured) is serving as Music Arranger and Supervisor on this production.
Beautifully expressed through the rousing beat of the gospel choir, the community’s sense of love, grief and spiritual survival will be given full voice in this classic production. For ticket details, visit www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/ shows/the-amen-corner.
