KC Fringe "Father, Son, and Holy Truth" review by alanskoalas

Great ideas, but poorly written and performed
Rating: 2

The Father, the Son, the Holy Truth
KC Fringe Festival

This play examines a lot of ideas, both factual and  mythical about Christianity and organized religion, and  their impact on the history of humans since Jesus was  born. I expected better, but this play was poorly written  and very poorly performed. The performer showed not  excitement or passion in his delivery. He had to hold the  manuscript in one hand the entire play, often referring  to it and reading the lines he could not remember. As an  agnostic, I was really looking forward to this play. It  was the biggest disappointment of the 2012 Fringe  Festival. I am giving it a #2 rating only because it had  some good ideas and philosophical questions about the  hypocrisy of Christianity that he was trying to express.  Otherwise, it would a #1 (the worst) rating.
