This was the one play everyone was talking about when it premiered at 2014’s Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville.

From up-and-coming playwright Lucas Hnath, “The Christians” is a tale of Pastor Paul, the leader of a Midwestern mega-church as he’s about to relay a sermon that will shake the foundation of the church’s beliefs.

This thought-provoking play asks audiences to examine the notion of faith, and can be engaged by believers and non-believers alike.
