This off-Broadway hit and New York Times Critics’ Pick now comes to Gainesville. Pastor Paul has worked for 20 years to build his church from a modest storefront to a mega-church of thousands. But the day he delivers an unexpected sermon, everything changes in ways that will shake his congregation to its core. One of the most talked about plays in regional theatre, The Christians takes you on a wild ride, as it explores the power of faith in our country. “This terrific play about the mystery of faith by Lucas Hnath — one of the freshest playwriting voices to emerge in the past five years — is MESMERIZING.” —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times. “DEEPLY AFFECTING. EMOTIONALLY DEVASTATING. A white-knuckled drama about a theological battle.”—Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New York Post.
