What critics have said about the Lucas Hnath’s THE CHRISTIANS...
“This is that rare play about religion that both believers and non-believers can embrace” -The Los Angeles Times
"…raises probing questions about how and why organized religion can be a divisive, if not abusive, social force…consistently combines formal invention with intellectual inquiry. Mr. Hnath is quickly emerging as one of the brightest new voices of his generation." —The New York Times
"…powerful, riveting…handles a complex and intellectual debate in a relatable way and that, more importantly, shows the human and real consequences of choices based in spirituality." —National Catholic Reporter
"…plants the audience squarely in the thick of the battle…utterly engrossing…many attendees bowed their heads at each call for prayer before reminding themselves that this is, in fact, just a play." —BroadwayWorld.com
“THE CHRISTIANS is a play that must be experienced.” – On Stage Los Angeles
“Thought provoking…magnetic…” – Stage Raw
