InnerMission Presents CHURCH By Young Jean Lee
InnerMission Productions has announced the third production of its 2018-2019 season, Church. This San Diego premiere was written by Young Jean Lee and will be directed by Kym Pappas.
Acclaimed playwright and director Young Jean Lee transforms her life-long struggle with Christianity into an exuberant church service. Both celebratory and confrontational, CHURCH will test the expectations of religious and non-religious alike-looking deep into why we believe what we believe.
*Produced in association with Dramatists Play Service
"Church" is as much about the art of persuasion as it is about religion. It's organized like an excellent and occasionally angry argument, starting by attacking the opponent's ideas and finishing by proposing new ones. But who is Ms. Lee arguing with? The supposedly godless denizens of the theater world? Or is she confronting her own lack of faith?
