College Acting Troupe Perform Gay Play
(2008-07-28)
(wgvu) - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A Western Michigan University acting
troupe will perform a play about gay Christians for the world's
Anglican bishops gathering this week in Canterbury, England.
The play, "Seven Passages," critically examines Bible verses
about homosexuality.
The ensemble will present it Wednesday and Thursday at the
once-a-decade Lambeth Conference. Attendance is optional for the
650 bishops expected to be at the conference.
The performances will coincide with the bishops' discussions of
sexuality, an issue that has splintered the 77 million-member
Anglican Communion.
The Grand Rapids Press reports that seven cast members will
perform the play under the direction of its author, Calvin College
theater professor Stephanie Sandberg.
