Phillip Seymour Hoffman directs this gritty play about a group of friends who meet at their teacher's funeral.
Closing date at the Union Square: July 27, 2003
From the review in the Village Voice:
Decibel levels run high in Stephen Adly Guirgis's harangue-filled Our Lady of 121st Street. His characters are angry and cannot be assuaged. Nor have they mastered the art of concealing their wrath, and passive aggression doesn't seem to be a personal option. For them it's all-out war—even if their battles are often misdirected. What's made them so mad? Life would seem to be the obvious answer—life lived, more specifically, in the pressure cooker of a Harlem street.
This production played the Labyrinth theatre last year, and has now been remounted at the Union Square.
