In playwright Heidi Schreck’s Grand Concourse, a nun goes to work in a Bronx soup kitchen, but her faith seems to waver. The arrival of Emma, a college dropout and volunteer filled with initial enthusiasm, adds to the stress as she becomes more and more erratic. Local actor, director and professor Rachel Dickson directs the regional premiere at Main Street Theater and says she was attracted to the project because of its theme of forgiveness. “It deals with a universal issue whether you are part of a faith or not; forgiveness is something we all understand. And personal struggle is something we all understand.” The four-actor cast learned to navigate around a crowded kitchen onstage and even took a field trip to a food kitchen during rehearsals. Dickson cautions that some of the subject matter is better left to older teens and adults, so leave the youngsters at home.

7:30 p.m. Saturday. Continuing 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. April 1 through 30. 2540 Times. For information call 713-524-6706 or visit mainstreettheater.com. $36 to $45.
