By Craig Wright
Directed by Julie Ahasay
Steve and Sara have relocated to Sunrise, Florida to pursue an unbelievably wonderful business deal. Things aren’t as sunny as they seem, however, and as the deal slowly unravels so does Steve. Sara, meanwhile, finds herself increasingly drawn to their next-door neighbor, Sam, a badly-scarred victim of a recent car accident who wants nothing to do with her or her Bible-quoting husband. In the end, with a little help from an old German exterminator who’s still angry about the Allied bombing of Hamburg in World War II, all three characters are confronted by a world that’s both better and worse than any religion can justify.
This searing and unflinching new drama plunges fearlessly into questions of faith and religion and proves that they aren’t necessarily the same thing at all. Craig Wright’s powerful drama is packed with moments profound, incisive and dangerous while at the same time toying with conventions of how an audience experiences a play. Bold and breathtaking, GRACE pulls no punches in its quest to explore and explain the things we do in the name of God.
A darkly comic, eerily tragic, wholly timely play.” – Chicago Sun-Times
