CHURCH

BY YOUNG JEAN LEE
DIRECTED BY MINA MORITA
SEP 13–OCT 6 · AT POTRERO STAGE · DIRECTIONS

What does it mean to lose, gain and question faith? In CHURCH, Young Jean Lee transforms her lifelong struggle with Christianity into an exuberant church service. A traveling group of earnest reverends testify through narrative, song, and dance, testing the expectations of religious and non-religious alike. In its New York City premiere, Time Out New York described CHURCH as “no cheap satire of piety. Instead, it is an earnestly warped attempt to explore what gives religion its insidious appeal.”
