October 3 - 26, 2019
The Christians tells the story of a church that grew over twenty years from a modest storefront to a congregation that numbers in the thousands. Led by Pastor Paul and his wife Elizabeth, the church now has classrooms, a coffee shop, escalators, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. But when Pastor Paul delivers a surprise message to his flock, a schism rips through the congregation and also his marriage with Elizabeth. Winner of the Kesselring Prize and Obie Award, The Christians asks the most important question of our timesCan we still love each other if we hold different beliefs?
This unique production will be performed in actual churches in several different neighborhoods in Seattle. Pony World is bringing theatre to you! Performances are October 3 - 26.
ALL Audiences welcome!
Featuring: Evan Whitfield, Sunam Ellis, Fune Tautala, Mark Fullerton, and Pilar O'Connell
