Role Description

Five Women: (Supporting) different ages, different circumstances, different reasons to attend, converge outside the church entrance and learn about tolerance, acceptance and the strength to go on, in spite of adversity, 1) a respectable society widow, over 40, who met Mrs. King as a child, 2) a pushy college wannabe journalist, 3) a middle-aged portrait artist and Katrina survivor, 4) a street-smart, wise-mouthed teen-aged mother-to-be, and 5) a traumatized Iraq-war veteran contemplating desertion; all have faced harsh realities, and all seek inspiration from the woman they have come to honor, their lives that at first seem so alien and inspire hostility, begin to resonate with commonality.
