The next performance will be on August 31 The Amen Corner by Readers Theatre Production from the Gate Theater Group at AUA Auditorium – one night only – 7pm – directed by Stephan Tuner – Written by American writer and social critic James Baldwin in 1954, The Amen Corner is a three-act play that portrays the incongruity of religious idealism and harsh reality in an African American community plagued by poverty and racial prejudice. The play follows a respected female pastor, Margaret Alexander, as she leads a church that meets in a storefront in the middle of the twentieth century. Margaret’s fears and suffering from her past have led her to a life of strict religious observance, and she leads her congregation without telling them of the failures in her past. Tickets for The Amen Corner are 250 baht, at the door only.  Box office opens at 6:00pm; curtain 7:00pm. General Admission seating.  Seating is limited. Arrive early!
