The Williams Project and LANGSTON present the first-ever Seattle production of James Baldwin’s The Amen Corner, directed by Reggie D. White

The Amen Corner

October 29 – November 20, 2022

Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute

Five years after wowing audiences and critics with its stripped-down version of Baldwin’s Blues for Mister Charlie, The Williams Project returns—this time in partnership with LANGSTON—for Seattle’s first-ever professional production of Baldwin’s best-known work.

In a storefront church in Harlem, Sister Margaret’s fierce piety inspires both devotion and fear in her congregation. But when a figure from her past returns, and her son starts looking for answers outside the church door, Sister Margaret finds her standing in danger. As secrets emerge and loyalties are tested, Sister Margaret must fight for her family, her flock, and ultimately, her faith. Equal parts soaring music, prophetic poetry, and gripping family dramaThe Amen Corner asks audiences to face the beautiful and frightening path that leads to liberation. And gives space to, as Baldwin says, “let the church say Amen.”

The Amen Corner is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com.
