A new play by Drew Pautz directed by Matthew Dunster.
An international group of church leaders converge in an African hotel to contend the need for Christian doctrine to change with the times. Fierce theological debate demonstrates that what's current thinking on one continent is abhorrent to another.
In a neighbouring room, a brief sexual encounter between Joseph, a local porter, and Michael, a British conference volunteer, leads to a direct and potent challenge both to Michael, as he returns to England to grapple with ethics of his own, and to the liberal claims and professed compassion of the affluent West and its church.
Drew Pautz's tense and provocative new play considers what we may be willing to sacrifice, personally and in the public sphere, for what we believe to be right.
