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.

The three of us were disturbed by the first half, but the second half was redeeming. We felt it was a believable picture of what things would be like in a war at home, and that we need to know these things. Also, the play was wonderfully done - actors, sets, directing, etc.

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.
