About this show

The Billie Holiday Theatre presents the world premiere of The Right Reverend Dupree in Exile, written & directed by Jackie Alexander. A lifelong man of faith, Reverend Charles Dupree is being pressured to give up the church he built as he fights a crippling terminal illness. During a self-imposed exile to his lakehouse in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, he and his devoted wife Miriam are briefly reunited with their sons after years of estrangement: Kenny, a professional basketball player, and Brendan, home to introduce his fiancée Olu, a practicing Muslim whose engagement to Brendan, a Christian, has caused her to be disowned from her own father. As each of them is forced to deal with the escalating decline in Dupree's health, they gain strength in their ability to face their own challenges.
