Sudden Death. A strange African disease. Extreme sibling rivalry. Sexual abuse by a priest. A picnic at the altar. Physical abuse by a parent. Spontaneous singing. Random death-defying feats while suspended from a huge tripod. Frequent flashbacks. An eating disorder. Extra-marital affairs. Manic depressive-disorder. Attachment disorder.”Jesus” in disco-wear. Glow-in-the-dark pews. Copious crying. Director/playwright Pascale Roger-McKeever’s maniacally unfocused Family in Church centres on the most dysfunctional family you will ever come across. It certainly makes for one of the most memorable plays of the season. But memorable in a good way? Go see and judge for yourself.
