Hell, no! Gulfshore Playhouse packs a wallop with ‘The Christians’
This little 90-minute play packs a wallop. The ending, which I will not reveal, is incredibly powerful, though also open to interpretation.
It’s unlike anything else I can recall seeing, and my feelings and thoughts about it changed repeatedly within 24 hours after seeing it; I suspect they’ll continue to change as I keep musing on this oddly affecting play.
And perhaps that’s what the playwright and Gulfshore Playhouse intend to do: challenge our thinking and make us think and rethink and rethink yet again.
After all, what good is a life — or a faith — that doesn’t stand up to repeated re-examination and questioning?
Do we live ruled by fear, or by love?
