Our Lady of 121st Street
After the death of the beloved Sister Rose, a group of her former students return to their Harlem neighborhood to pay respects. But at the Funeral Home, there's a problemâ€”her dead body has been stolen. An irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy, directed by Obie Award-winner Anne Kauffman (Detroit), Our Lady of 121st Street paints a vivid comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard.
