Event Description

I’d Like to Buy an Enemy – Richmond, VA

 

Ted & Company Theaterworks with special guest Brian McLaren present the comedy-satire I’d Like to Buy an Enemy at First Mennonite Church, Richmond (601 E Parham Rd, Richmond, VA 23227) on March 24 at 7:00pm. Tickets are $15, available for purchase at the door. Online ticket sales have ended.

Starring Ted & Company TheaterWorks actors Ted Swartz and Tim Ruebke, this thought-provoking show allows us to laugh at ourselves, while engaging us to think about the place of the US in the world, to confront the fear that is such a large part of our culture, and to consider how we can work for peace and justice in this country and in the world.

Renown author, speaker and activist Brian McLaren, author of his latest book Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road? will join Ted & Company for this one-time event, offering a fresh diagnosis of the problem of interreligious conflict and exploring how Jesus’ original message addressed this.

You will certainly laugh, but you will also be challenged to reflect on the biases and unjust practices that pervade the American mentality, and be energized to find creative ways to address issues of peace and justice in your communities and beyond.  I’d Like to Buy an Enemy is a show that speaks across religions, denominations, generations and backgrounds, for people who aim to be the change we seek.
