Keys of the Kingdom

Keys of the Kingdom opens January 2015 in Chicago IL

Stage Left Theatre, in association with Theater Wit, announces the upcoming world premiere of Keys of the Kingdom written by Penny Penniston and directed by ensemble member Greg Werstler. Keys of the Kingdom is the second production of Stage Left's 33rd season. Press opening is Friday, January 16, 2015 at 8 PM at Theater Wit, 1229 West Belmont / Chicago IL 60657. The show runs through February 15, 2015.

As assistant to the celebrity pastor of an evangelical mega church, Arthur obeys orders, attacks paperwork, and guards against sin. So Arthur is surprised when the church pastor commissions a mural from Irene Hoff, an atheist New York artist married to another woman. Arthur is even more surprised when the pastor explains that he believes Irene has been chosen by God. But the biggest surprise of all is what happens when Irene shows up and starts to paint.
