Review: “The Christians”

This was my first Lucas Hnath play at Actors Theater in Louisville, KY.  I enjoyed his unique writing that left me leaving the auditorium with more questions than answers about belief and faith.  The best part is that Lucas did not show his cards and did not force his opinion among the masses.  He did the […]
