This off-Broadway hit and New York Times Critics’ Pick now comes to Gainesville. THE CHRISTIANS by Lucas Hnath is "about faith in America―and the trouble with changing your mind. Pastor Paul does not believe in Hell, and today, he's going to preach a sermon that finally says what he really believes. He thinks all the people in his church are going be happy to hear what he has to say. He's wrong."

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.

"A clever, searching and elusively profound work. Amen to that." - The Guardian.
