THE PLAY: A secular urban, urbane couple discovers that their teenage daughter is considering Christianity, which causes debate and concern.

 

THE PRODUCTION: This show is all about the characters’ relationships and this intimate venue is the ideal place to enjoy every nuance of this excellent cast’s perfomances. Kimberly Jones Clark gives the mother just the right combination of abrasiveness and empathy, while Joe Pabst brings humor and affection to his fatherly role. Two newcomers make impressive professional debuts: Zoe Cotzias is assured, yet confused as the daughter, while Joseph Nelson is delightful and downright cute as her best friend. Director Jeffrey Cole brings out the humanity in every character, while keeping the staging crisp. The technical elements ably support the production, although the projections and light cues are a bit a abrupt.

 

THE POINT: A lighthearted twist on the effect of religion and family dynamics that features four enjoyable performances.

 

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
