Read full description of the books:
Stephen Adly Guirgis’ play Our Lady of 121st Street is “too”: too many characters, characters who are too over-the-top, too many stereotypes, too pointless. Beloved Sister Rose, who long slaved away at the eponymous school, has died, and someone has stolen her body. Her former pupils — all of them dysfunctional and unlikeable except for former student Inez, the put-upon ex-wife of a self-absorbed philanderer who also attended the school — drop in to pay their respects, while another former student — the abusive Balthazar, now one of New York’s Finest — investigates the crime. The characters are so stereotypical that Amazon ships me items in boxes that are less cardboard. And the point of this tale? You tell me.
Giurgis’ play won some awards when it debuted in 2003, and he’s been compared to David Mamet. I can’t see why.
