The Christians

The Christians

by Lucas Hnath
Directed by Andrew Paul
June 16 - July 2, 2017

Pastor Paul has spent 20 years successfully growing his church from a modest storefront to a gleaming megachurch, but he no longer believes in Hell, and he’s about to preach a sermon about it. He thinks all of the people in his church are going to be happy to hear what he has to say. He’s wrong…

Both epic and unexpectedly intimate, an unflinching look at faith in America, The Christians, one of the major highlights of the 2014 Humana Festival at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, went on to an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at Playwrights Horizons.
