Goodbye to The Christians
It is hard to say goodbye to this beautiful play, and to the wonderful people who engaged in making it happen.
From our wonderful, talented choir, full of smart, passionate people who gave of their time and talents, to our choir director and pianist, to our exceptional cast and crew, I am grateful to you all and will miss you.
Doing a play on a religious subject was surprising in many ways. Our two talk-backs, with local clergy and Havurah members, were incredibly dynamic. I was amazed how many audience members stayed to talk.
People of all beliefs and opinions stayed and shared their thoughts in respectful ways, and everyone found something in this play to relate to.
Kudos to Lucas Hnath for writing so deeply on such a potentially loaded subject, in a way that respected everyone and made us all think and reflect.
