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.

There is only one week left to see the play critics are calling "fascinating" and "thought-provoking."

More praise:

"An almost miraculous feat—addressing matters of faith without condescension, manipulation, or belittling." —The Baltimore Sun

“Though it is bound to resonate with Christians, its inquiries transcend church, extending into the idea of institutions in general, as well as the risks and rewards of belonging to a community.”—Baltimore Style

“Kudos to Hnath’s and this entire production to understand both that church is theater, and that a pastor’s sermon touches people where they live—in their intimate, ordinary, day-to-day lives.” —Bmore Art
