Synopsis

Pastor Paul has built his congregation from modest storefront to shining megachurch with a membership of thousands. But when the beloved minister steps up to the pulpit to share a new belief, his stunning revelation leaves the entire church community rocked to its core. A provocative excavation of modern faith, The Christians will feature music from a community choir comprised of people from all faiths and backgrounds. A runaway hit of the New York theatre season, this stunningly original play will have all of Atlanta talking.
