Christian Theater

Maybe it’s better to ask, what is religious drama? Maybe that will bring you closer to finding a play? Assuming that’s the import of the question.

Perhaps Christian theatre is theatre done by Christian artists. The play itself, the playing style, the advertising, none of it necessarily needs to name the name that is above all names. Christian artists might seek to serve, by being prophetic, priestly, kingly – by doing a nasty Pinter play if that’s what the community needs to see, or the artists need to do. I would hesitate to say that there is a thumbprint Christian theatre experience.
