Main Street Players proudly presents the second show of the 2019-2020 season, Church and State by Jason Odell Williams. Three days before his bid for reelection, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on “the Twitter”, calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God. As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
The show is directed by Robert Coppel, and the production manager is Dennis Lyzniak. The cast is as follows:
Anthony Linzalone: Senator Charles Whitmore
Christy Antonio: Sara Whitmore
Melissa Bibliowicz: Alex Klein
David Brzostowicki: Tom/Marshall/Security Guard/News Anchor
