Actors Express opens its season with an exploration of religion.

The play, called “The Christians,” introduces Pastor Paul, who has an eye-opening revelation. The result causes a crisis of faith among his megachurch congregation.

“City Lights” host Lois Reitzes spoke with Freddie Ashley, Actor’s Express’ artistic director and the director of the production, alongside actor Brian Kurlander, who plays Pastor Paul, about faith, division and their experiences getting familiar with megachurches. 

“The Christians” opens on Sept. 16 and run through Oct. 15.
