Grand Concourse may well break your heart. You may need tissues by the end.” - New York Post.

In a Bronx soup kitchen, the steady and ever-so efficient Shelley finds herself struggling to stay devoted and authentic to her faith. Her struggles slowly unravel as Emma, a lost and idealistic college dropout, starts volunteering there. Although Emma brings new life and energy to the soup kitchen, her personal challenges test Shelley's, and everyone else’s, generosity

UD’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will collect non-perishable food items and donations at each performance to support community members who are challenged by food security. Donations will benefit the Dubuque Rescue Mission.

Grand Concourse is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
