Hornets’ Nest: The Christians

Mar 20 – Mar 20


By Lucas Hnath

Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul's church was nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church's belief. How can an institution – religious or secular – move forward when what its leader believes to be right doesn’t match what its members want?

Geva’s Hornets’ Nest Series presents readings of contemporary plays investigating some of the most challenging and controversial questions of our time. Galvanizing post-play discussions are led by key experts and instigators from the Rochester community.
