Burning Coal Theatre at the Murphey School, 224 Polk Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
The Jesus Fund: World premiere of a play by Richard Bean. Directed by Beth Gardiner. The Jesus Fund deals with an historic theological seminary in a remote corner of Manhattan Island that is struggling to remain open due to declining fundraising efforts. When one of their past students, the son of a hugely popular televangelist and a man who has made his name as “the corporate raider for Christ”, arrives on the scene with an offer to help, the seminary must make a decision: to remain open and continue doing the good work they do, or close their doors forever in order to avoid incurring a debt to one who they consider to be of dubious moral principles.
Saturday, February 1 @ 6:00 PM - Ex-North Carolina playwright Terry Milner will be in discussion with director Beth Gardiner on the play, the state of new writing, and his personal stary. Free for any ticket holder to any performance of The Jesus Fund, $5 for others.
Sunday, February 2 @ 2:00 PM - Pay What You Can performance. Also, this performance will be audio described for the sight impaired.
General Admission $25; Seniors $20; Active Military/Students $15 - except Thurdays all seats $10.
