Grand Concourse was staged as a part of Basement Arts' 2016 Winter Mainstage Season


Shelly’s a nun who runs a gleaming soup kitchen in the Bronx on Grand Concourse Avenue, but lately her heart’s not into it. She’s questioning her faith and purpose, and everything gets a little exacerbated when Emma, a nineteen year old college dropout begins volunteering to find a little direction in life. As Emma seeks a place at the kitchen, she finds herself befriending Oscar – the maintenance guy, and Frog – a homeless intellectual, but things get a little chaotic as this community confronts friendship, wellness, and what it means to forgive.  Grand Concourse is about the coming together of people, and most importantly the relationships we sustain.
