GRACE is a contemporary drama, with a flavor of dark comedy, by Craig Wright about a Christian evangelical couple facing a crisis of faith as they start a new life in sunny, promise-filled Florida, with big plans to open a chain of Gospel motels. An agitated neighbor and a caustic exterminator complete the eclectic foursome as destinies collide. The evangelical Christian couple, Sara and Steve, leave their dreary life in Minnesota for sunny Florida and the hope of fast money from turning abandoned hotels into a chain of gospel-themed inns. Their new neighbor, Sam, is struggling to emerge from the trauma of a car accident that killed his fiancée and left him badly maimed. And the building’s pest exterminator, Karl, is still tormented by a dark childhood episode. As their stories converge, Wright’s characters find themselves face-to-face with the most eternally vexing questions—the nature of faith, the meaning of suffering, and the possibility of redemption. Acidly funny and relentlessly searching, Grace is a trenchant work from an immensely gifted playwright.

Following the talk back session with the cast, we will head to: The Bombay House, located near the theater for dinner at 2731 Parley's Way in Salt Lake. The theater will also raffle off a signed window card of GRACE for the Utah Theater Lovers. It is opening seating in this small, intimate theatre. So we should all be able to sit together.
