About this product
- DescriptionThe difference between belief and kwledge and the consequences of mistaking one for the other are at the heart of Craig Wright s play Grace. An evangelical Christian couple, Sara and Steve, leave a dreary life in Minnesota for sunny Florida and the hope of fast money from turning abandoned hotels into a chain of gospel-themed inns. Their new neighbor, Sam, is struggling to emerge from the trauma of a car accident that killed his fiancee and left him badly maimed. And the building s pest exterminator, Karl, is still tormented by a dark childhood episode. As their stories converge, Wright s characters find themselves face-to-face with the most eternally vexing questions the nature of faith, the meaning of suffering, and the possibility of redemption. Acidly funny and relentlessly searching, Grace is a trenchant work from an immensely gifted playwright.
