Produced in Partnership with Members of the Triad Clergy
Staged Reading at Triad Stage in Greensboro NC. 2016
Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award and Nominated for the Lucille Lortel and Drama Desk Awards for Most Outstanding Off-Broadway Play of 2016.
Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul's church was nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church's belief. A big-little play about faith in America—and the trouble with changing your mind.
