Press notes for Lilies state, "The Bishop Bilodeau arrives one morning at a Canadian prison to hear the last confession of a childhood friend, instead finding himself compelled to confront a past revived as the prison inmates perform a haunting and tragic story of passion and obsession among three boys at a small Christian school in 1912. Lust and love collide when two men confront their own conflicting memories in a final effort to reclaim lost lives and achieve redemption and revenge."
Tickets, priced $30, are available by phoning (800) 838-3006 or by visiting DeconstructiveTheatreProject.
Middle Church is located at 50 East 7th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenues, in Manhattan.
