This play examines religion’s roots, complexities, and controversies. It's an interactive experience that infuses music, movement, and martial arts with stories and texts from various cultures. Part of Piccolo Spoleto Festival.

If only all religious services were as enthralling as this theatrical experiment. Charleston-based Deuce Theatre (originally from New Jersey) polled audience members at their previous Piccolo show, The Emperor Is Naked? Deuce asked them what they thought about faith. Then they devised a show around the responses, incorporating some of them into the dialogue.

Be ready to join in
This theater company is big on audience interaction, so don't be surprised if you get asked to hold a prop, join a procession, or even get sacrificed to a Great Tree God.

Deuce deserves praise
They never promise you a miracle, but this company definitely deserves a congregation. The play blends soundscapes, dialogue clips, martial arts, dance, mime, myth-telling, and a deft sense of comic timing to make a theatrical event that informs us about other beliefs and entertains us with memorable stage images. Don't agree with all the comments on religion? Blame yourselves — they're taken from the polls.
