Asleep in the Arms of God
Jesse, a white southern preacher, struggles to hold his church and family together against forces of prejudice that threaten to rip them apart. Paul, the preacher’s son, rebels against a community that seems blind and complicit with the racism that surrounds them. Jake, the grandson, comes to terms with his own struggles in the light of a strained relationship with his father. Asleep in the Arms of God is the story of three generations of a southern family struggling with issues of faith, acceptance, identity and prejudice. This thought-provoking play promises to expose our human brokenness while pointing us toward the hope of a better future.
