“When theatre works best, it’s … like being locked in a room where a horrible argument is happening. Church is a lot like theatre,” writes “Christianity Today.”
“‘The Christians’ is a serious play, with serious craft and serious aspirations. It doesn’t have a ‘message’ or a point of view on salvation to proclaim. It’s a harrowing dig through our hearts, a play about our deepest and, often, most noble desires and motivations and yearnings.”
“The Christians” by Lucas Hnath is a play about faith in America — and the trouble with changing your mind.
Pastor Paul does not believe in Hell, and today, he’s going to preach a sermon that finally says what he really believes. He thinks all the people in his church are going be happy to hear what he has to say.
Hats off to Boise Contemporary Theatre for presenting this play, in this American political environment, and in Idaho. “The Christians” runs Apr. 19 – May 6, 2023.
