In the bleak corporate break room of a big box store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. This is the site where the thorny issues of faith, forgiveness, and second chances are put on the table. These lost souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith.


“I have always admired people who’ve held firm to their beliefs and convictions.  It takes a great amount of energy to stand firm and stay true to what you believe.  On the flip side to that, I also greatly admire and appreciate people who open themselves up to new ideas, who are willing to change and consider different perspectives. When humans choose to engage in either of these practices they become vulnerable, and sometimes that is a very scary place to be.  The characters you see here tonight have put themselves into that frightening place.  For some, it is a place they feel very comfortable – for others, it is very hard to escape.  Still for others, it is very easy to exit.  We have all been in these places at some point in our lives.  If you see bits and pieces of you in this play, and if you walk away with tons of questions, then our job here is done.”
