How Do We Keep Faith in Dark Times?

Center Theatre Group invites you to attend 90-minute pre-show engagement experiences on selected nights that feature local thought-leaders in dialogue about the context, issues and ideas finding voice on our stages.*

What is the role of belief in enduring times of great suffering? What do we hold on to when it feels like the world is coming apart? Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney was inspired in part by the Book of Job to write Head of Passes, a play he says charts the journey of the faithful living through the unimaginable. Join us for a discussion of the importance and difficulty of finding something to believe in in times of pain and affliction—and how the Book of Job resonates today for both religious and secular Americans.

Plus, enjoy pre-show bites and wine. No ticket purchase is required to attend.

*An RSVP to the Community Conversation does not include a ticket to the performance at the Mark Taper Forum. Existing ticketholders are welcome to join us, but are encouraged to RSVP.
