Event Description

Learning to Play – Landisville, PA

Ted Swartz will present his newest show on sexuality and the church, Learning to Play, March 9, 2014. There will be a matinee showing of the play, at 3:00pm and an evening show at 7:00pm, both at Landisville Mennonite Church in Landisville, PA.

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.
