Overview


Synopsis

The ladies of the Executive Board of the Shiloe Baptist Church meet on a Saturday afternoon at Sister Ruby’s house to decide whether to elect a new member of the board. Sister Ruby leads the faction in favor of adding the new member, a much younger woman with fresh ideas. Sister Esther, the head of the Board, opposes the new addition. Amen Sister is mostly played for laughs, but the play also shows the serious side of challenging hide-bound faith with new ideas.
