4 Jun – 14 Aug
The Amen Corner by James Baldwin, National Theatre

The Amen Corner The Amen Corner

Rufus Norris (Table, London Road, Death and the King's Horseman) returns to direct an exhilarating new production of James Baldwin's celebrated play.

Marianne Jean-Baptiste plays Sister Margaret, an uncompromising pastor of her Harlem church, who has her congregation already in revolt against her hardline leadership. Charges of hypocrisy hang in the air and Margaret’s devout world looks perilously close to falling apart. She is joined by Sharon D Clarke and Lucian Msamati.

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 with music sung by the London Community Gospel Choir.

Over 500 £12 tickets for every night.
