WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LOSE FAITH IN OUR LEADERS?

The Christians
By Lucas Hnath
Directed by Hana S. Sharif
Now through Oct 8

Does absolute tolerance require tolerance of the intolerant? Can a divided head find a way to lead? When the stakes are eternity, what happens if they are wrong? These are the questions that arise in a present-day American megachurch in The Christians, a new play exploring what happens when we lose faith in our leaders and our institutions. Stunning in its theatricality, this production will feature choirs from area churches.
