The Amen Corner Tickets

  • “And there it stand, my whole life, just like I hadn't never gone nowhere. It's a awful thing to think about, the way love never dies!”

    As the gospel singing soars, Sister Margaret, uncompromising pastor of her Harlem church, has a congregation already in revolt against her hardline leadership. Their resentment escalates with the return of her absentee husband, a trombone-playing sinner, and 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.

    “I hope you don’t mean he loves music more than he loves the Lord.”

    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 the National's production of James Baldwin's THE AMEN CORNER (1965). Their church may be humble but their lungs are full with fervour.

    Starring Marianne Jean-Baptiste (The Vagina Monologues and TV's Without A Trace) and Sharon D. Clarke (NT's Guys and Dolls, Ghost, Chicago, We Will Rock You, The Lion King, and Rent). Book your tickets for THE AMEN CORNER at the National's Olivier Theatre!
