By Prisca Jebet Kendagor
Directed by Elizabeth Bettendorf Bowman
May 13-23, 2021
Three old church camp friends who once shared a common bond in the faith, now share a common bond in their love for each other. Having explored the sexual tension these three have shared over the years, reality must be faced for some, and dealt with for others. The Holy Trinity will be developed with KCPublic’s Resident Playwright over the course of the season, culminating in a fully staged production.
