Hailed as “crackling, resonant, humorous” by NPR and written by Emmy Award-nominated Jason Odell Williams (Brain Games), Church & State is a provocative, fast-paced and witty look at the life of a politician, whose belief system gets shaken to the core…three days before his bid for re-election. Directed by Charlotte Cohn (founding producer of the New York Music Theatre Festival and Mainstreet Musicals), Church & State will have you talking and Tweeting long after the curtain closes.

The acclaimed play, which first premiered off-Broadway in 2017, received three Ovation Award nominations, including Best Playwriting for an Original Play and Best Production.

A talkback with will follow every performance. Special talkback guests will be announced at a later date.
