Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands in a modern megachurch – but he is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church’s beliefs. A big-little play about faith in America – and the trouble with changing your mind. “…powerful, riveting…handles a complex and intellectual debate in a relatable way and that, more importantly, shows the human and real consequences of choices based in spirituality.” National Catholic Reporter
 

 


Falling

Falling boldly explores the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic young man. When a relative comes to visit, the entire family is thrown out of equilibrium, with everyone trying to balance what is best for the family and what is best for themselves. The play bravely speaks a truth about love and family and about hopes and dreams. It asks, “How do you love someone who is difficult to love?” “Packs a huge emotional punch” NY Observer
