come to town, courtesy of Horse Head Theatre Co. and The Heritage Society, for a sermon unlike any other at the historic 1891 St. John Church. “[Lee] uses the tropes, the devices and the methods behind a lot of Christian services to have a conversation that I think is primarily secular,” says director Jacey Little. Audiences are asked to question their beliefs, “not just spiritually, but politically and socially and culturally.” To better set the scene, everyone is invited to join in a pre- and post-show experience, beginning at 7:30 p.m., on the surrounding park grounds, complete with games, interactions with the in-character actors, and beer from Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company.
8 p.m. Friday. Continuing 8 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays and August 7. August 4 through August 20. 1100 Bagby. For information, call 281?381?4166 or visit horseheadtheatre.org
