Company Be Theater at Holley Hall

August 18, 2018 @ 8:00 pm – 11:59 pm

Church & State by Jason Odell Williams

PLEASE NOTE: The Saturday, August 18 performance will now be held in Holley Hall in Bristol–same time, same price.

Company Be presents a new play that is taking the country by storm by lifting the curtain behind our political system and revealing the very human people who make the decisions that shape our society and affect our lives. Three days before his bid for reelection, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on “the Twitter,” calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God. As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking and uplifting.
