FAITH examines religious fanaticism via 13-year-old Simon, the son of “an apostate” mother and absent father, desperately seeking an ecstatic vision in the parking lot of his local Walmart. When a Harbinger finally appears to him, his faith transforms, leading him down an unexpected path. Funny and charming, provocative and absorbing, the award-winning James McLindon spurs us to question (and, perhaps, affirm) our own faith. Full of magic, theatrics and- yes- jokes, FAITH was a LOCAL Lab 2014 Selection.
Starring Em Grosland, Meridith C. Grundei, Leigh Miller and Mare Trevathan.
Casting by Sylvia Gregory, with New York casting by Stephanie Klapper. Other casting TBA.
