Circle X Theatre Co. examines the stretch marks in the American dream with a world premiere comedy written and directed by Leo Geter. What do a porn star, a stripper and a soldier have in common with a Christian, a Muslim and a Mormon? They all want to get Naked Before God, running March 24 – April 28 at [Inside] the Ford (recommended for mature audiences 17+).
In Naked Before God, Kristen Burrows (Jennifer A. Skinner) has hit upon a brilliant way to transform the sins of her youth into lots of cash: she’s going to combine her adult film past with a born again future. But things get more than a little out of hand when the Christian radio talk show host Kristen has invited for dinner (William Salyers) meets her teenage son Duncan (Morgan McClellan), Duncan’s wife Carly (Jen Kays), and a few unexpected visitors (Larry Clarke, Christopher Foley and Aly Mawji). Geter’s wild and darkly comic farce is an R-rated romp through the intersection of religion and commerce with a couple of side trips through lust and greed.
Naked Before God runs Thursdays, Fridays andSaturdays @8 pm andSundays @2 pm and7 pm, March 24 through April 28. Seven previews take place March 15-23 on the same schedule. General admission is $25 except Opening Night (March 24) which is$34 and includes a post-performance reception with the actors. Seniors and full-time students with ID are$12.
