The Christians by Lucas Hnath

Director: Lauren Warhol Caldwell. 1st rehearsal: March 30 Run: April 20 – May 13

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.

Associate Pastor (Joshua):  African-American 20s-30s, a wayward soul who came to the church years earlier and was taken in and given a spiritual home; a strong sense of integrity, honesty, directness without being abrasive or hostile.

Congregant (Jenny):  Any Ethnicity 20s-30s, a congregant; a working class, single mother struggling financially, she has found assistance and support within the church; is now deeply afraid of the impact of the controversy on her personal life and faith but is not afraid to ask confrontational questions.

MAX SIDE 1

 

The Royale by Marco Ramirez

Director: Ryan George 1st rehearsal: Dec. 15 Run: Jan. 12 – Feb.11

Jay “The Sport” Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905, and in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for “the fight of the century,” “The Sport” just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion.

Max: 30-40s, Caucasian, a fight promoter and referee. He hitched his wagon to the train in which he saw potential — Jay. He likes making money, but more importantly, he likes the sport of it all. He believes what they are doing is important – but in terms of the historic, not in a social sense.
