Synopsis: Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul’s church was nothing more than a modest storefront.  Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool.  Today should be a day of celebration.  But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church’s belief.  A big-little play about faith in America—and the trouble with changing your mind.

Joe.  But as the process continues, Jake’s behavior becomes erratic and perplexing, and other adults in his life start to wonder whether his fondness for dress-up might be cause for concern.  This story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son is a study of intimacy and parenthood and the fantasies that accompany both.
