The Christians

by Lucas Hnath

A Senior Project in Theater Studies for Hershel Holiday

Just your average play about a megachurch pastor who one day decides to lead his flock down a (in his eyes) more righteous path. An earnest exploration of belief in America and of the current generation's attempts to reconcile scripture with modern life.

"…powerful, riveting…handles a complex and intellectual debate in a relatable way and that, more importantly, shows the human and real consequences of choices based in spirituality." —National Catholic Reporter.

"…plants the audience squarely in the thick of the battle…utterly engrossing…many attendees bowed their heads at each call for prayer before reminding themselves that this is, in fact, just a play." —
