PURE Theatre kicks off its 14th season with The Christians, Lucas Hnath’s play about a pastor grappling with his faith. The New York Post calls The Christians both “deeply affecting” and “emotionally devastating.” The play is about pastor Paul’s megachurch, a former modest storefront turned into a house of worship that includes a coffee shop and a swimming-pool-sized baptismal font. The production features just five performers, in addition to a live choir. Things come to a head when Paul preaches a sermon that shakes his church’s beliefs. Erin Wilson, PURE Theatre core ensemble member, directs The Christians, and the cast includes PURE core ensemble members Rodney Lee Rogers, Joy Vandevort-Cobb, Randy Neale, Brannen Daugherty, and new PURE performer Mary Fishburne. —Connelly Hardaway
