Shelley spends her days running a soup kitchen in the Bronx, her sense of purpose inseparable from her religious faith, though both have begun to waver. Emma, a college dropout looking for direction, arrives at the kitchen hoping to find it there. She brings a needed jolt to the place, helping a long-time client toward a new job, but her energy also proves unsettling. Even as Emma's behavior grows steadily more erratic, Shelley still wants to believe in her, despite the mounting evidence that she shouldn't. Shelley must finally ask herself how well she really knows the people she sees every day, how much she can trust them, and what she can and cannot forgive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Matters of faith and friendship, and secrets and lies, are blended into the stew in Grand Concourse." --New York Times
"Schreck is seriously concerned with values and morals--Catholic values and morals, specifically--and the surprising conclusions she draws as the lights fade are not only unforgettable but entirely forgivable."--Huffington Post
"Set in a Bronx soup kitchen, Grand Concourse is something of a morality tale. But while Heidi Schreck's new play is about big issues like faith and forgiveness, it has such a light, empathetic touch that it never feels like a lecture. You may need tissues by the end, though." --New York Post
