Manchester Players to read 'Church & State'
The Manchester Players will read "Church & State" by Jason Odell Williams at 2 p.m. Sunday, at the Wilburton Inn.
"Church & State" is a fast-paced, witty and funny look at faith, politics and "The Twitter." It is three days before Charles Whitmore's Senate re-election and he has decided to tell the truth about what's on his mind. What could go wrong?
The play begins after a school incident in Raleigh, North Carolina, leads Whitmore to question, not only his faith, but his political beliefs. He has doubts about his stance on guns and experiences a crisis of faith.
Telling the truth and speaking from his heart could end his political career. He does so and the end result of his honesty is both disturbing and tranformative.
Williams has written an enjoyable, thought-provoking and timely piece that speaks to the lunacy of modern politics. Every member of Congress should see it!
The reading will feature local, professional actors. It is open to the public and donations are accepted. To reserve a seat please call at 802-362-2500.
