Our Christian Nation
  • Edinburgh Fringe

What if the extreme Christian right in the USA got everything they wanted? Emmy winner Joe Janes's play, featuring 10 Chicago actors performing 40 characters, shows us the absurdity of a Christians-only country. The Bible becomes a textbook in history and science lessons, fetuses are assigned lawyers, homosexuality is a crime, corporations take over social services, women know their place, fairy tales are revised to reflect Christian values, belief replaces facts and our president is also a spiritual leader. Dinosaurs welcome! Joe Janes also teaches comedy writing and improv at The Second City and Columbia College.
