Unholy - A Play by Diane Flacks


*Gretta will join the cast for a post-show conversation on November 29th.


Unholy, written by Diane Flacks, is a examination of contemporary women in organized religion. The play is set as a debate where four female panelists answer the the question: "Should women abandon religion?" The four panelists are: A progressive Muslim Lawyer, an Orthodox Jewish spiritual leader, an excommunicated nun and a lesbian atheist. This play delivers a whip-smart, hilarious debate that becomes personal and heated, allowing for the women to see the connections and disconnections between them. This play was nominated for Best New Play at the 2017 Dora Awards.

Here is Diane's short video testimonial on her reason to speak.
