"Provocative and enjoyable"
– VARIETY

September 15 – October 21, 2007 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 3 hours and 30 minutes

In this humorous yet unsettling look at the thorny relationship between politics and religion, Ruhl examines three explosive periods in history—Elizabethan England, pre-World War II Germany and post-Vietnam War America—as three towns stage the Passion play.  Startlingly original, epic in scope yet beautifully human in its effect, Passion Play pits religious dogma, personal faith, and the realities of politics against love, beauty, and truth—all with Ruhl's signature wit, seductive theatricality, and devastating insight.
