Run Time: Approximately 80 minutes with NO intermission
Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church’s belief.
“I have a powerful urge to communicate with you, but I find the distance between us insurmountable.”
“Sincere, complex, nuanced…exploration of a crisis of leadership, and thus of faith. One of the most interesting, focused, counterintuitive and intellectually compelling playwrights of our moment. Does not waste a word.”
– Chicago Tribune
“Immersive, timeless, thought provoking work of drama. The Christians is done so well I had a hard time not automatically bowing my head and joining in the prayers.”
– Northwest Herald
