Church

1 Male, 4 Female

Young Jean Lee Price: $8.99

Acclaimed playwright and director Young Jean Lee transforms her life-long struggle with Christianity into an exuberant church service

Both celebratory and confrontational, Church will test the expectations of religious and non-religious alike, looking deep into why we believe what we believe

REVIEWS

“[Lee’s] slyly subversive drama ambushes its audience with an earnest and surprisingly moving Christian church service that might be the most unlikely provocation produced in years … the point here is not to convert so much as to confront. Ms. Lee has a talent for evocative and sometimes grotesque imagery, and on the attack she is at the height of her powers" ~ The New York Times

“Lee’s writing displays her customary surgical precision and menace, a rhetorically supple mix of invective and goofiness. And while she uses parable and drops the odd Biblical phrase … she seems more intent on roasting her audience’s secular complacency than blaspheming or exposing the machinery of belief" ~ Time Out (New York).
