 “Incisive, provocative play…intimate and involving, thanks to a first-rate cast.” – Time Out New York Critics’ Pick

“The cast, under Douglas Hall’s direction, is uniformly strong…savvy and often sharply comic”– Talkin’ Broadway

Renee Calarco writes “with verve” – The New York Times


Mo and Brian are a picture-perfect DC couple: they’re smart, they’re witty, and they have a beautifully remodeled kitchen. But when Mo’s best friend Patti announces she’s found Jesus and is putting her own career on hold, Mo must take a closer look at the harder truths surrounding her own marriage. A comedy about relationships, faith, and the fine line between compromise and regret.

“The Religion Thing” was nominated for a Helen Hayes/Charles MacArthur Award for Best New Play in 2013.
