Baltimore Center Stage: The Christians
The Christians
September 07–October 08
  • By Lucas Hnath
  • Directed by Hana S. Sharif

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE LOSE FAITH IN OUR LEADERS?

Does absolute tolerance require tolerance of the intolerant? Can a divided head find a way to lead? When the stakes are eternity, what happens if your pastor is wrong? These are the questions that arise in a present-day American megachurch in The Christians, a new play about the seemingly insurmountable distance that exists when people of the same religion hold different beliefs. Stunning in its theatricality, this production will feature multiple choirs from area churches. Prescient in its investigation of the commercialization of religion, this play spotlights the sensitive and challenging obstacles of all successful organizations.   

2016 Outer Critics Circle Award Winner

“[Hnath is] one of the brightest new voices of his generation.” –New York Times

Content Advisory: This poignant drama about personal faith and organized religion tackles big questions and subjects that may interest audiences in middle school and up.
