Religion can draw us together, or it can pull us apart. Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was a modest storefront. Now it houses thousands, with a coffee shop in the lobby and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration, but Pastor Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs.
Backed by a live choir, The Christians is both an epic and unexpectedly intimate drama. This provocative new play offers an unflinching look at faith of any denomination — and its power to unite or divide.
