Whitefish Theatre Company presents "The Christians" (Black Curtain show)
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.
REMINDER: Black Curtain production is a type of reader's theatre. Actors may be reading from a script and there is minimal costumes and staging.
