  • Directed by Gregory Boyd

  • Hubbard Theatre

  • The run time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with no intermission.


Artistic Director Gregory Boyd will direct Lucas Hnath’s The Christians which centers on Pastor Paul, who started his church in a modest storefront. Now, he presides over a congregation of thousands. On the anniversary of the church’s founding, Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs. What happens to the flock when the shepherd has a change of heart? “[The Christians] is that rare play about religion that both believers and nonbelievers can embrace, “ says the Los Angeles Times.
