This offbeat comedy-drama is the final piece in the "Church and State" trilogy that includes the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play Doubt and the bold drama Defiance -- both works that explore morality and power. In his third play in the trilogy, writer John Patrick Shanley (Oscar winner for Moonstruck), shines a spotlight on the fraught relationship between religion and politics. In the midst of a cold Bronx winter, an ambitious borough president faces off against a disillusioned minister as he tries to help a local woman caught in the mortgage crisis. Carl Lumbly (Alias, Southland) is part of an ensemble cast of well-known Bay Area actors, including Derek Fischer, Rod Gnapp, Gabriel Marin, Ray Reinheart and Gloria Weinstock, who star in this funny and uplifting play.

Love the new venue, and have been to many wonderful plays at SF Playhouse. This script obviously had potential, but it needed a lot more from the direction and acting. This was the second time I've seen the director/founder's daughter in their plays... perhaps time to reach a little farther for talent. Some of the work at SF Playhouse (especially when directed by Amy Glazer) has been truly top-notch, professional theater. Not this time.
About the Ticket Supplier: The San Francisco Playhouse
The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square's intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse -- which won the Bay Guardian's 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco's newest theatre isn't just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront...it's an enticing introduction to a new company" -- has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
