The Christians — Iowa Stage Theatre Co.
Playwright Lucas Hnath takes a hard look at organized religions with The Christians. Sponsored by Linda Juckette, the Iowa Stage Theater Co. brings The Christians to the Kum & Go Theater stage.
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. A thought-provoking and funny play about faith in America—and the incredible challenge of institutional change. “…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.
Performances on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights as well as Saturday and Sunday matinees in the Kum & Go Theater.
April 13 – April 22, 2018
