Kansas Repertory Theatre Presents: Chasing Gods

Only weeks have passed since the country witnessed one of the deadliest, recorded acts of violence against the LGBTQ community, the Pulse nightclub shooting. From the pulpit of Holy Ground Baptist Church, Pastor Deidre Curtis condemns the tragedy’s victims in the name of God and Christianity. Deidra's controlling, judgmental ways have alienated her from her husband, Immanuel, and her two children, Elijah and Olivia. Playwright Paris Crayton III explores a family searching to love and co-exist with a matriarch whose religious devotion threatens each members’ healing and growth. Chasing Gods is an artistic experiment in “radical empathy”—extending compassion and understanding even to those whose ideas and beliefs challenge our own. Chasing Gods is a production of Kansas Repertory Theatre and is produced in partnership with NewYorkRep. It is made possible by the city of Lawrence and KU's Friends of the Theatre organization.
