Having dedicated her life to religious service, Shelley runs a Bronx soup kitchen with unsentimental efficiency, but lately her heart's not quite in it. When Emma - an idealistic but confused college dropout - arrives to volunteer, her reckless mix of generosity and self-involvement pushes Shelley to the breaking point. With keen humor and startling compassion, Grand Concourse navigates the mystery of faith, the limits of forgiveness, and the pursuit of something resembling joy. Grand Concourse was a Nominee for the 2015 Lucille Lortel Award, a Finalist for the 2015 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, and was included on the 2014 Kilroys List.
