A COMMENTARY ON COMPASSION
Pastor Paul's church twenty years ago 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 parking lot big enough to get lost in it. Today should be a day of celebration. However, when the beloved minister steps up to the pulpit to share a reconsidered version of his beliefs, his stunning revelation leaves the entire church community rocked to its core. Praised by the National Catholic Reporter for being “powerful, riveting, and handling a complex and intellectual debate in a relatable way”, Lucan Hnath’s The Christians is a big-little play about faith in America—and the trouble with changing your mind.
"Powerful, riveting…handles a complex and intellectual debate in a relatable way and that, more importantly, shows the human and real consequences of choices based in spirituality." —National Catholic Reporter
"…plants the audience squarely in the thick of the battle…utterly engrossing…many attendees bowed their heads at each call for prayer before reminding themselves that this is, in fact, just a play." —BroadwayWorld.com
