Black Curtain Theatre: Church and State
By Jason Odell Williams
No Senators Were Harmed In the Making of this Play
November 19 & 20, 2022
Three days before his bid for re-election – and in the wake of another school shooting - U.S. Senator Charles Whitmore has a life-altering crisis of faith, triggering an off-the-cuff comment to a Twitter-savvy blogger that sends his entire campaign into a tailspin. The Senator's devout wife and liberal campaign manager try desperately to contain the damage, but in a country where religion influences politics and politics have become a religion, how do you reach the people and stay true to yourself? A timely and fast-paced story that was nominated for Best New Play in 2017, Church and State is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
