The Christians — Iowa Stage Theatre Co.
Playwright Lucas Hnath takes a hard look at organized religions with The Christians. Sponsored by Craig and Betty Miller, Phil Miller, and Miller Mechanical Specialists, 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 and Sunday nights in the Kum & Go Theater.
April 13 – April 22, 2018
