Event Description

Learning to Play – Bluffton, OH

Ted Swartz will present his newest show on sexuality and the church, Learning to Play, April 3, 2014 at Bluffton University. Ted will perform some biblical story sketches in chapel at 11 am in Yoder Recital Hall. Learning to Play will be performed at 8 pm in Founders Hall. The evening show is open to the public.

In Learning to Play, Ted Swartz uses his distinctive humor to give voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around sexuality and same-sex relationships. It’s about a father’s journey, a church’s struggle and a search for commonality.

Learning to Play follows the story of a widowed father whose son has just come out as gay. Through his relationships with his son, an estranged cousin, people in his church and a pastor who deals with issues of sexuality in the Bible, the main character is challenged by many different viewpoints and experiences.

It’s a piece about church. It’s a piece about fatherhood. It’s a piece about community. It’s a piece about our sexuality. And it’s an entertaining and enlightening piece about openness and love.
