The hottest, most discussed play from this year’s Humana Festival of New American plays is The Christians. This play been called “a theological bombshell.” It’s the one play that everyone came back from Louisville talking about. As one review put it, “there are plays that make you think, and there are plays that make you capital T-H-I-N-K.”
Lucas Hnath is one of the brightest voices of the newest generation of playwrights. Here he presents us with a stylized service in a midwestern mega-church, as Pastor Paul delivers a revelation that will rock the very foundations of the congregation.
