The Christians

A co-production with Ambrose Arts
By Lucas Hnath

It’s an emotional and intellectual ride through faith, power, and mega-church politics as Pastor Paul abruptly and radically changes theological direction on a hot-button issue. Events quickly snowball in stunning exchanges full of humanity, complexity, and the astounding ability to keep audiences guessing what happens next. Are beliefs a thing to hold in spite of the havoc they wreak? Or is there room for more perspectives without unsettling our own?

“Church splits are Hell. This play about one isn’t.” – Christianity Today

“This is that rare play about religion that both believers and non=believers can embrace.” – Charles McNulty, L.A. Times

“Both epic and intimate, the melodic drama asks legitimately difficult questions about belief and behavior.” – The Guardian
