Description

Should women abandon religion?

Four female panellists face off in a wild, whip-smart televised debate about the intersection of religion and misogyny. On one side, there’s Maryam, a progressive Muslim lawyer, and Yehudit, an Orthodox Jewish spiritual leader. The other has Liz, a lesbian antitheist pundit, and Margaret, an excommunicated nun. The debaters wrestle with themselves and with each other: Can you be a feminist and believe in religion? What can or can’t be forgiven? Why do we have faith to begin with? Between the arguments, each of the debaters return to a seminal and secret moment in their past that represents a crisis of faith, leading the debate to become more and more personally charged, until it climaxes in an epic battle.

Unholy delves into the biblical struggles that tear us apart and make us who we are. It’s about having the courage to take the leap in life and into love. What is more holy than that?

Editorial Reviews

“There is no hiding in Unholy—there’s bad, morally questionable, and worse. That’s what makes it so good.” 

— Madeleine Copp, Mooney on Theatre

“Necessary and timely. It is important in creating a dialogue for women to discuss how religion has created a world divided by beliefs, while at the same time, seeking a path towards reconnection.” 

— Heidy M., Hye’s Musings

Unholy is a remarkably funny and intellectually stimulating play about feminism, religion and tolerance and serves as a balm to all the hate-based discussion of these topics one encounters nowadays in all forms of media.” 

— Christopher Hoile, Stage Door
