Acts of Faith is Back in RVA

acts_of_faith_logotealThe 2014 Acts of Faith Festival is back in Richmond this year!

This is the 10th annual Acts of Faith Theatre Festival which is the largest faith-based theatre festival in the United States, and 15 area theaters are participating with a total of 18 shows.  The Acts of Faith Theatre Festival is not limited to one interpretation of faith or any one specific theatre-goer.  Professional theaters as well as Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and other faith communities participate to create a truly diverse season that runs from January 12 – April 19, 2014.

Don’t believe me that this is a super-cool event not to be missed? Check out the article in the Washington Post!

As in past years, the 2014 festival offers something for everyone.  Several shows deal with faith questions about loss, forgiveness, and redemption, such as Quality of Life from HATTheatreGrace from TheatreLAB in collaboration with Henley Street Theatre Company and Richmond Shakespeare, and High from Richmond Triangle PlayersChamberlayne Actors Theatre is offering an original play by a local playwright, Amy Berlin, and a formerly-local playwright, Ann Bucci.  The Joshua Plant is about Josh, a teen with severe autism, trapped in parallel realities while he and his mother struggle to connect, communicate, and save each other.

This is one my favorite events every year, I love to see the whole theatre community in one place (and how rare that you get a chance to preview a show?). You don’t want to miss this year’s event!
