Description

 “Church & State”, written by Jason Odell Williams and directed by veteran Ujima alum Ross Hewitt. The play is a powerful, funny and timely political drama that tackles how religion, guns, and social media influence politics and politicians. 

***CONTENT/TRIGGER WARNING***: This play contains references to gun violence, and contains gunshot sounds.

“Church & State”  takes place three days before one U.S. Senator’s  bid for re-election - in the wake of another school shooting. The tragedy results in a life-altering crisis of faith, triggering an off-the-cuff comment which sends the entire campaign into a tailspin. His wife and campaign manager try to contain the damage, but in a country where religion influences politics and politics have become a religion, how do you reach the people and stay true to yourself? A timely and fast-paced story that is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
