Written by Jason Odell Williams and directed by Liam Castellan, Church and State takes a timely look at how religion, guns, and social media influence our political system. It is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.

Three days before his bid for re-election in North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator, played by Stephen Hunt, makes an off-the-cuff remark to a blogger that calls into question his belief in God. His devoutly Christian wife, played by Abby Lee, and his liberal Jewish campaign manager, played by Tess Cunningham, try to contain the damage. Joined by actor Jonathan Golombiecki and a wonderful creative team, Church and State will not disappoint!

Doors for each general admission performance will open 30 minutes ahead of time. If not sold out, tickets will be sold at the door for cash and check only.

The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center houses a unique blend of artists, performers, and educators. At the Ivy Tech Waldron, visitors can see a play, catch a concert, and enjoy multiple art galleries. The venue’s two performance spaces, the Whikehart Auditorium and the Rose Firebay, have both hosted countless events since the center’s doors opened in 1992. Although it’s just as adaptable and well-equipped, the Rose Firebay is a more intimate space than the auditorium upstairs, seating up to 90 people. The Rose Firebay is fully accessible through the Waldron’s Fourth Street entrance. Parking is available across the street in the Fourth Street Garage.
