About This Show

After the death of the beloved Sister Rose, a group of her former students return to their Harlem neighborhood to pay respects. But at the funeral home, there’s a problem — her dead body has been stolen. An irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy, directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman (Detroit), Our Lady of 121st Street paints a vivid comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard.
