What the critics are saying about The Christians


"Mr. Hnath grants his characters the dignity of sincere belief, even as his play raises probing questions about how and why organized religion can be a divisive, if not abusive, social force." Charles Isherwook, NY Times

“Hnath’s deft writing and Waters’ well-hewed direction help “The Christians” reveal how stagecraft works to beguile those under its spell to disassociate themselves from their gut-feelings and maintain a veneer of control — particularly in a rapidly changing and daunting world.”       –Elizabeth Kramer, Courier-Journal

“Ultimately, “The Christians” struggles with big questions of salvation and grace without ever definitively delivering a writer’s verdict. And so this is a play that people of faiths of all stripes, as well as nonbelievers, can engage with on a meaningful level.”      –Erin Keane, WFPL


“Stories placed in such an overtly religious context can divide theatregoers, but The Christians walks a fine line by managing to be a drama that examines faith but that proves fulfilling wherever your beliefs position you in society.”     –Keith Waits, arts-louisville.com
