Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was nothing more that a modest storefront. Now he presides over a membership of thousands, with a church that includes a coffee shop and a swimming-pool sized baptismal font. But on the day the church has paid off its mortgage, Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his congregation’s beliefs.

Ben Butler

by Richard Strand • John O’Connell directs
April 18**,19, 20, 26, 27, 28* May 3, 4, 2019

In the first months of the Civil War an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary. General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma: follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. History. Based on actual events in 1861, this play is clever without being glib, meaningful without being pretentious, and side-splittingly funny. It’s a timeless exploration of social conscience and individual responsibility.

Cast:
Major General Ben Butler: Thom Hofrichter
Lieutenant Kelly: Kevin Torwelle
Shepard Mallory: Tony McCarrol
Major Cary: Bob Phillips
