Event Description

Listening for Grace – Iowa City, IA

Ted Swartz's most in-demand show, Listening for Grace, is coming to Iowa City, IA on October 22, 2015 at 7:00 pm at Old Brick, 26 E. Market St., Iowa City, IA 52245. Admission is free and open to the public!

This latest play by Ted Swartz is a funny, powerful, poignant performance which gives voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around same sex relationships. A father's journey, a church's struggle, a search for commonality.

Listening for Grace 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.
