The Christians is an unflinching look at values in America — and its power to unite or divide.

Directed by C. Patrick Gendusa, Lucas Hnath’s The Christians centers on Pastor Paul, who started his church ten years ago in a modest storefront. Now it houses thousands, with a coffee shop in the lobby and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs. Staged as a church service and backed by a live choir, The Christians is both epic and unexpectedly intimate, an unflinching look at values in America — and its power to unite or divide. Named a Top 10 Play by Time Magazine, the The New York Times called it “Mesmerizing” and described Hnath “as one of the brightest new voices of his generation.”
